I see another loooong table for

Nellie's Barn Sale!

Truly a Don’t Miss This Sale!” and I

would ♥♥♥♥ to see you there!

But in the meantime—here’s that table I’m working on!

Which started with some LONG pallet boards, some old farm table legs from my stashes ~and THEN I decided to add a cool drawer into the mix!

a pile of pallet boards, some old farm table legs...

....then add a drawer to the mix...

The drawer was a deep, center desk drawer that I cut down!

REsizing a deep drawer~

I laid out the boards to get a feel for how DEEP and how LONG I would ultimately make this table.  12″ deep × 5’6″ long.

~it's actually very simple construction!

Table construction is actually very simplistic!

  1. I laid out (and cut) the boards to determine width and length,
  2. found CENTER to figure in the drawer and used a jig saw to cut the drawer contour.
  3. I ran boards through the table saw to cut aprons to depth to match the drawer, and~
  4. cut and mitered those specifically to support the long table top boards and drawer.
  5. Pictured below~I cut and contoured a support for the drawer to hold it in place and let it glide in and out, and,
  6. lastly, I added the legs!

~it's actually very simple construction!

Today I work on the finishes~

I like the unexpected notch in the center!
