Custom Farmhouse Table Workshop Series

Custom Farmhouse Table Workshop Series

Presented by Sawdust Savvy at Sawdust Savvy

The solid wood Farmhouse Dining Room Table is a Sawdust Savvy custom design that measures 85″ long by 38″ wide (length and width can be customized to fit your space).  Built from a base of 4×4 and 2x4s, and finished in 2×8 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 1 – Thurs. Sept. 29, 2016, 7:30-8:30pm: Introduction, review steps, receive supply/cut List, how to buy wood

Session 2 – Sat. Oct. 8, 2016, 8-11:30am: Intro to building techniques, building the table base, building the tabletop

Session 3 – Sat. Oct. 8, 2016, 11:30am-1pm: Troubleshooting, finishing techniques

Please note: this workshop series 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 then go buy the supplies before the next session.  Supplies are not included in the workshop fee (supply fees are approximately $160).  Some steps in the building process require an additional person (to help hold pieces in place while you screw them together).

ALL participants must have their own power drill.  If you do not own a power drill and cannot borrow one, purchasing a power drill will add around $100 to your supply fees. Some tools will be available to borrow for a 24-hour period of time on a first-come, first-served basis.  Assistance from Sawdust Savvy will be available throughout the building process.
