If you want a small farmhouse dining table with an interesting style, this DIY Farmhouse Table Plan from Rogue Engineer is brilliant to try. The design comes with a simple base but has double angles making it interesting. Though the dining table is small, it can easily accommodate four people in a narrow area. Even six people can also sit closely. You can modify the design for a wider or longer table by simply lengthening the required pieces.

We are moving into the new house, but with so many, many functional projects to tackle (like closets and pantry cabinets), a beautiful dining table is way down on the priority list.  But still, I insisited we need a dining table to move in.  Once you give in to the kids eating on the couch, you're done ... or at the very least have to be the bad guy and retrain the family.

Now is where things get fun.  HomeRight sent this awesome paint sprayer and it’s a game changer.  If you haven’t read all those blog posts I’ve written before and told you about how much I hated to paint furniture, I’ll just tell you again.  I hate painting furniture.  But mainly, I hate it because I’ve always done it with a brush.  And nothing ruins a good build job like brush marks…ugh, right?

Often you are in search of an outstanding and unique gift for your friends and family members. You need such gift which is the most admirable. I am introducing a puzzled shape bear and a duck, which can be used for decoration on the wall or you can use them as table mats. This gift is an amazing start for you in woodworking. It would look beautiful when its gift pack would be opened. I am sharing some of the examples of these pictures. Have a look at them.
If you’re looking to show off you’re woodworking skills and you have a piece of wood with a beautiful linear grain pattern, then this box project is a great choice. It’s a more refined box design, and as you might expect, it’s a little more challenging to build than the simple keepsake box presented earlier on this gift list. The sides are constructed so that the wood grain flows smoothly across one face, around the corner and into the adjoining face — and all the way around the box without a break — the grain itself becomes a major part of the design. The design is also enhanced by tapering the box sides, allowing the eye to more easily take in the continuous run of grain at the corners.
This basic table from Instructables is also very easy to build, and also the benches are simple in design. If you are looking to make a simple table with many seating, you can consider making this table. However, the chairs would require some good carpentry skills or you can buy them separately. It is recommended to use kiln dried lumber which can be readily available at your home store. Check for the initials KD or HT to know the type of lumber to be used.

I can't really make good recommendations as to what specific brands of tools are better than others. Most of my tools were opportunistic purchases, with relatively little regard to specific brands. More often than not, it's price and a quick inspection to gauge the solidity of the tool that are the determining factors. My tools are usually not among the best that can be had, but good enough.
