Pete’s Farmhouse Table
By Pete Carrasquillo from Missouri

A traditional farmhouse table, but less rustic and more finished and modern measuring 72″ x 38″. 6/4 hard maple top with breadboard ends attached with 38″ long sliding dove tails. Legs are 3 x 3 laminated rock maple. BUT I fabricated the skirt and stretcher from steel and had them powder-coated white. The steel stretcher is bolted to the legs, but I tried to make it look like it is somehow through-tenoned to the legs by capping the bolts with white Corian caps held in place with rare-earth magnets.
This thing weighs a freakin’ ton, but disassembles and reassembles easily. It even packs flat. A pair of coordinated benches are in process.
