We purchased five 2″ x6′ of Douglass fir for the top, 1″ x 5″ of pine for the apron and 4″ x4″s for the legs. Using a palm sander, we sanded down the boards for the top and rounded the corners. Then I used a chisel on the corners and edges to give it a worn look.
For the table top we used Minwax Special Walnut stain. We finished with four coats of Minwax Water Based Polycrylic.
We painted the legs and apron white to match our kitchen cabinets. To assemble the table, we followed this tutorial here pretty closely. We did insert a few screws on 45 degree angle from plank to plank to add more stability to the top.
I love the way this table has turned out. One of my favorite projects I have ever done!
