This 2-session workshop will walk you through the steps and allow for hands-on learning, and you will take those skills with you and build your table at home. Participants will receive their detailed supply list at the first workshop, and are encouraged to buy the supplies before session 2. Supplies are not included in the workshop fee (supply fees are approximately $150). Some steps in the building process require an additional person (to help hold pieces in place while you screw them together).

The solid wood Farmhouse Dining Room Table is a Sawdust Savvy custom design. The table plans are for a table that measures 85" long by 38" wide but the length and width can easily be customized to fit your space. Built from a base of 4x4 and 2x4s, and finished in 2x8 and 2x10s with a decorative breadboard overhang, this sturdy table will meet the needs of every family. The table can be finished in any technique you desire - the workshop will cover stain and polyurethane application techniques.

Session 2 - Mon. April 30, 2018, 5-10pm: Building the table base, building the tabletop, troubleshooting, assembling the table, finishing techniques.
