Began working on my new dining room table last nite. Started looking at farmhouse tables about a year ago online after I saw a crazy expensive one Robert Redford's Sundance magazine that my wife gets. Kudos to these folks who came up with the plans (http://www.domesticated-engineer.com/1/post/2012/02/farmhouse-table-part-2.html). I decided to rip & glue my tabletop to get a flat, smooth surface. All of the wood is pine and from my local lumber yard. More pics to follow as I progress.
