I have struggled a while to find the perfect dining table that is small enough for the tiny bit of space i got as well as being cheap - over the years priced of old farmhouse tables rocketed so i hit the building site - and decided to use old and battered wood - if you are thinking of building your own table - or a bench - then this is the tutorial for you x
To make it its really easy , and cheap and you can make it to your desired size

How to
1 measure and cut your scaffold boards so they are even , make sure you sand them down so they are also smooth

2  measure and cut your ply or random piece of wood in order to install it underneath the table to help holding boards tight - i used 9mm ply and i cut it smaller than the width of boards . then screw it in .

3 assembly - now this is very easy
starting for the leg bottom bar  (pick 1 48cm pipe and attach 3 tee bars as shown on the first photo above then tighten it
then we are going to put leg pipes through it - pick 2 63 cm pipes and put them through both outside tee clamps adding a round wall plates to the top and bottom of your pipes those will be the table feet and table fitting plates , then  construct the other set of legs
once you are done with that you can use single bottom bar pipe (106 cm ) and attach it to the middle tee clamp that was empty then tighten it
then flip the table over and screw it to your table top and you are done ;) table takes max 2 hours to complete finish with wax or wood stain
