~New Garden Farm Table & Simple & Sweet Fridays #248~

I wanted to share with you photos of a 
new garden farm table we built.
This is the area of the new table.
We were fortunate to get some fir barn wood from our friends, Kim and David.  David brought the wood out west he obtained from a barn in Middletown Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.  The beam and barn pieces were quite old with aged square nails in the boards.
We started designing the base and configuration for the tabletop.
We cut the 14 foot beam to make the legs and cross piece and make a rail frame to support the tabletop.
The base was 80 inches long and the tabletop pieces 48 to 54 inches so we used oak dowels to secure the six sections to make the tabletop strong and level.
After joining the base and sections we sanded the tabletop before applying a transparent water sealer.  Here are some shots of the finished farm table.

We will definitely enjoy the new table for the holidays!
Here is some photos of our Thanksgiving feast.
We made fish bouillabaisse and crab cakes.
We also made individual
 beef wellingtons, mashed potatoes and butternut squash.
A wonderful family Thanksgiving!

  1. Jody, your table is perfection! of course! I can see it becoming an heirloom. Your dinner looks amazing too. (gosh I cant come to this site and not sound like I'm gushing!) and I still believe one day you will open your house for a select Bed and Breakfast occasion, and I will be able to go and remove one thing from my very short'bucket list'. :D hugs.
