Farm Table Build Along - FINISHED!!

I'm finished!   Table is in the dining room and was used this past weekend for a family gathering.  Here's some final pics.

I used seven coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal on the table top.   3 coats, then 320 grit sand.  Another coat, 320 sand.  Another coat,  600 sand.  Another coat, 600 sand, final coat.  

Legs and benches got 5 coats, similar sanding.

   

Some assembly required.

   

Here it is, completely assembled.  One thing I didn't mention....The table can be (somewhat ) easily shortened.  It's 9 ft long now.  It fits in our current dining room, but who knows if that will fit in the next house.  So, I can shorten the bottom stretcher by up to 18 inches and cut the same amount off of the top.

   


I had enough extra wood to make three benches.  A five footer and a couple three footers.   It would have been nice to have enough long boards to make them as long as the table.  But, as I mentioned earlier, I wanted to only use wood found on our farm.


   


And here it is!  All ready for the Christmas gathering.  We were able to fit 16 people around it w/o feeling too crowded.

   


Thanks for following along!

Just curious what the assembled weight is. Don't imagine it is going anywhere without a lot of muscle.

It's not too bad.  The legs are fir and the top is pine.  

I'd say around 135 lbs.  Just a guess based on these estimates:  35 lbs per leg...50 lbs top and 25 lbs for the stretcher.
