Husband: What do you want the table to look like?
Wife: Rustic.

Husband builds a traditional farmhouse style frame, glues and screws the wood to secure it, filling in holes in with dowel rods for a finished yet rustic look.

Husband: Like this?
Wife: I think so. But more rustic.
Husband: What do you mean more rustic?
Wife: I don’t know…distress it a bit?

Using a dull chisel, Husband gouges the wood edges for a rough finish.

Husband takes a blowtorch to the areas surrounding any knots.

Husband: Like that, right?
Wife: YES! But I think I want the table to be bigger…
Husband: Seriously? You’re kidding.
Wife: No. But I love you!

Husband builds two 3-pronged wooden extensions to add 18.5'' to the length of the table.
