Tools & Materials

  • Wood screws
  • Wood glue
  • 10 each pine 2x4s 8 foot long
  • Quartersawn white oak 30 bd ft
  • Minwax weathered oak stain
  • Minwax wipe on polyurethane


this was a project I was commissioned for by my younger sister's BFF. It is a straight forward trestle-type farmhouse table. As there were no available plans that exactly matched what she wanted, I worked from a couple of downloaded images from pinterest. The trestles are made from construction-grade ordinary pine 2x4's bought from Lowe's. this kept the final cost down considerably, but was quite adequate as the request was for the trestles to be painted and have a distressed/aged look. First time I ever did that kind of finish and it came out quite well.

The table top is constructed of quarter-sawn white oak purchased from a hardwood mill in Lakeland, Florida. Top is glued up with dowels for alignment.
