Trestle Table Plans
for You to Build a
Farmhouse Table.

You Can Build This Trestle Farmhouse Table!

I love these trestle table plans!  Wow!  I have never started a review with that statement.  Too bad my house is not big enough -  I think I will have to redesign something similar that fits a smaller dining area.

Back to THIS Kreg farmhouse table - This plan is great because:

  • It is easy - it CAN be built by a beginner woodworker;
  • The wood is just 2x4s, 2x6s and 4x4s;
  • It is impressive; and
  • It is sturdy.

The top of this farmhouse table is 33" deep and 101" long.  The table top is the standard 30" high.  The top is done breadboard style.

The plans are easy to follow!  Even though this is a large project, the plans break it down into sections.  You can build one component at a time, so the process is not so daunting.  SEE MORE BELOW!

Woodworking Tools Needed to Build These Kreg Farmhouse Table Plans.

This woodworking plan from Kreg Tool Company requires only a few tools. The woodworking HAND tools are:

  • Kreg jig;
  • woodworking clamps;
  • hammer;
  • tape measure; and
  • pencil.

You will need the following woodworking POWER tools:

  • circular saw;
  • miter saw or chop saw*;
  • electric sander; and
  • drill.

Most of the cuts you could do with a circular saw, except for cutting the 4x4 leg posts to length.  That requires either a miter saw or a chop saw to get a clean cut through 3 1/2" of wood!  All of your other cuts for these trestle table plans would probably be straighter if done on a miter saw or chop saw, too.

NOTE: There are no miter cuts (i.e. 45 degree angles)!

On a project of this size an electric sander would be a necessity!

Always make sure you wear your safety glasses when using your power tools.

Here is a List of the Materials for This Kreg Jig Plan.

Materials Needed To Build Kreg Farmhouse Table:

  • (7) 96" long 2x6 boards;
  • (6) 96" long 2x4 boards;
  • (1) 96" long 4x4 board;
  • (16) 3" wood screws (for attaching leg posts);
  • (40) 2 1/2" wood screws(for attaching Outer Leg Base, Caps and Feet; and
  • (150) 2 1/2 inch coarse Kreg screws.

(You may not be able to find the screws at your local hardware or big box store.  By clicking on the photo of the screws, you can buy them directly from the Kreg Tool Company.)

Take Time to Select Your Wood!

Even though all of the wood used in these trestle table plans is dimensional lumber (i.e. - 2x4s, 2x6s, and 4x4s), it is VERY IMPORTANT that it be straight.  In the "Project Notes" it is recommended that you "spend a little time sorting through the stacks to find boards that look the best and have the fewest defects."

Have You Seen This Kreg DVD about Building Tables?

We have watched this DVD several times, and each time learn something new.  If you want to design your own table using Kreg jig joinery, this DVD would be a worthwhile investment!

The Approximate Cost to Build These Trestle Table Plans are Below.


To build these trestle table plans, exactly as written, would cost approximately $100, not including the cost of your finishing materials.

Check Out
our Hints, Tips and Recommendations!

The plan is very detailed, including step-by-step, colorful diagrams.  As with all the plans produced by Kreg Tool Company, it also includes a complete materials list, cutting diagrams, and numerous tips.

We recommend you read the plan through before starting, and then review the Project Notes at every stage of building.  The "Project Notes" and "DIY Tips" are very helpful.

This plan uses two types of pocket hole joinery:  right angle - which is what you use most of the time; and edge joinery - used here connect all the pieces of the top.

For the right angle pocket holes, the Kreg Right Angle Clamp would make the job much easier.  For the edge joining, a good face clamp is a must!   Check out the Kreg AutoMaxx to help you get the table top boards even.

If you didn't buy the Kreg DIY Project Kit (this plan is Free with that kit), the purchase price of $7 for this plan is well worth it, especially if this is one of your first projects.
