Farm Table Plans

Our next project the hubs and I are making is a long farm table for our home. The one we have now is an old school workshop table I painted white (it had loads of bubblegum and some names scribbled underneath, which required a lot of cleaning). We have some beautiful cherry wood a friend of ours gave us. Um, that's an amazing gift! We were thrilled and now need to work out what kind of legs our new table will have. We've used tablelegs.com before on a console table. However, if we do an X style table then we don't need to order any legs. Here are some images of tables I really like. What style do you like most?

Those chunky legs are what I think I lean towards.

However, I like the straight and simple lines of this table too. 
Amazing Table
I'm trying to look at just the tables, but all those chairs are beautiful too. Notice how none of the tables and chairs are matchy. Creating a mix of styles make these farm tables updated and current looking. Here's the cherry wood that Steve has started working on. Can't wait!


  1. The chunkier and curvy legs the better- on any piece of furniture. Can't wait to see the results.

  2. Tracy what an exciting project!!!! I can't wait to see what you come up with. I love how that second to last photo has the x-detail down the center of the table, so pretty.

  3. I prefer the X style, but whatever you pick will be amazing, I'm sure. How fun!

  4. For this style of table I prefer the x-shape or the square shaped ends like the last one. Whatever you pick I'm sure will look great!
