Default Rustic bench - Harvest/Farmhouse Table - Ottawa

I didn't want to clutter Casa's thread so I decided to create a new one. I am looking to buy a (smaller) farmhouse/harvest table and a bench to go with it (similar to the picture below) and am wondering where is the best place to go in Ottawa for this?

I found a place outside of Ottawa that makes this kind of furniture (rusticbenches.ca) but if there's a store here that you can recommend, please let me know. Thanks.

So funny! We are in the process of making ours right now
The construction is done, and we are just into sanding it and then staining/poly it.
It's been fun to make! And cost us about $200 with very nice wood from WoodSource.
And we will be making the bench too!
Check out Ana-white.com for plans if you're interested in making it

Thanks for the link, Cosmo. I'll have a look and see if we can tackle that :-) Look like a lot of fun.

Well, if this gives you any incentive, the only thing I've made before is my headboard, and DH has never really made anything.
But it's done...and we're still married
So I'm guessing pretty much anything is possible.

i am interested in a really similar set. I have looked at the ana-white stuff and am not sure I'm ready for that kind of project. But i'll be sure to let you know if I find a place!

So far the only place I've gotten a quote from was Gendron Antiques in Stittsville. Nice stuff, but a little more than we wanted to pay...

Lucy, a friend suggested checking out Third World Bazaar in Manotick (unfortunately it has closed for the season) and the new Oak Tree in Carleton Place for some ideas/prices.

Agree with you about the prices, I didn't expect to see the kind of prices people are asking for their harvest or farmhouse tables or however you call them on kijiji but I guess this type of furniture is not something you can find in a regular store so people can ask whatever they want to ask I suppose...

I was wondering where we could buy the wood to make this table. Will definitely check out the WoodSource! Thanks Can I ask what type of wood you purchased? And was it "rough" or "dressed" wood?

We used knotty pine. It was very clean and some pieces looked like select.
I will post pics when it's done!

Cosmo - how did you cut the wood? Did you guys buy a saw? I am thinking of buying one too and just not sure what I want - jig saw, table saw, circular saw, mitre saw - what did you find the most helpful?

We cut most pieces with my BladeRunner. Kinda like an upside down jigsaw, with a mitre guide. The only pieces we cut with a table saw were the 2x8's.
Worked great.
