The dinner table is a symbol of unity. It’s where we discuss our life’s most recent events, positive and negative. It’s where we share meals with people that we love.
Farmhouse tables, also known as harvest tables, enhance that familiar feeling. These strong and sturdy tables were once used as farmers’ workstations, but nowadays, they offer a gathering place for family and friends. Not only are farmhouse tables reliably strong, but they’re a charming addition to any home. Store-bought farmhouse tables can get really spendy, but luckily there are a variety of farmhouse table plans available online!
Farmhouse tables can be made from a variety of wood including maple, solid oak, or reclaimed pine. Before you source your wood, look into whether your city has a reclaimed wood facility. Not only is reclaimed wood eco-friendly, but the unique distressed details are one of a kind. Keep in mind, however, that the harder the wood is, the higher the price will be.
Whether you’re an amateur or expert, these harvest tables have a lot to offer for an affordable price. The following DIY plans are free and offer step-by-step instructions for any level of woodworker. Farmhouse tables can be a big investment, literally and physically, so you’ll want to choose a project that matches up with your skillset. Check out some of our favorite farmhouse table plans below.
Rustic Farmhouse Table Plans
These farmhouse plans take us back to the original days of table development. David, of “Popular Mechanics”, reminds us that farmers used to build these tables themselves, and they weren’t carpenters either! It’s okay if your table comes out a bit more rustic than most. It only adds to the character.

The outdoor dining table is finished!!! (It has been but I’ve been waiting to get chairs to take a picture of it all.) Handmade by myself and my dad @garydiapice Plans from @anawhitediy We altered the plans just a hair to do the cedar top in 1×6 and did pressure treated for the frame to lower cost and make it perfect for outdoors. My dad also suggested switching out the bottom beam to a 2×6 for more support when people place their feet on it. I used a danish oil on the cedar top and stained the bottom in Providencal. I love it!!!! Can’t wait to use it tonight!
