We were so please to help Shara out with her Traditional Farm Table project, you can check it out here. In her post she not only explains the build and provides detail instructions but she talks about the difference between modern table design and more traditional table design.
The legs Shara used were part FL11500-WP, the Monte Carlo Dining Table Leg. These legs are 29" tall and 5" wide making them a nice husky option for any farm table. Due to the size of the table she chose to create a skirt out of 2x6 material and attached the legs with pocket screws. She also chose to construct two perpendicular skirting boards for additional support and to better secure the top. The top is glued up of 2x12 pine boards.
Shara decided to finish the table as a "two-tone" with a clear coat on the pine top and a distressed white finish on the legs and base.
We were so glad to be part of the Shara's process and provide legs that fit the design and size of her table. A well-built farm table can be the centerpiece of any dining room and can even dictate the feel of the entire home. We are pleased to offer many different legs to fit a range of dining room tables including Shara's.
