About This Project

The online plans for this table were far too long for our room, so I took the plans to Sketchup and shortened them to fit our space.
Having done so, I had to adjust the board-shopping list and I goofed up and ended up with a slightly shorter 2x4 for the table top!
So, I cut that board in half, and added a squared-off 2x4 piece and set it in the center of the table with the grain going in the same direction as the breadboards (fixed in with pocket-hole screws). It turned out very nice and the center square gives a little extra interest to the center of the table. (can't really see the center in the picture, sorry).

We LOVE our 'experimental' finish technique! The table looks amazing and very expensive.

The outdoor photo of the table was taken as I waited for the ebony-wiped stain to dry -- before the semi-gloss polyurethane. The Polyurethane darked the whole piece up just enough to make it take on a deep rich look.
I often get the remark "YOU made THIS?" !
