This was my first project and I LOVE it. We desperately needed to get a new table for our kitchen, and thanks to Ana... here she is. I love it. I cannot wait until I build more things. The Handbuilt Home is ear marked for many projects. I am such a geek, I have not only the book, but the digital version as well. This is so helpful because the digital version is on my phone and I have it readily available when I go to the store. I cannot recommend this book enough. Ana exudes confidence and that helped me to pick up that circular saw. NO FEAR! Ok, I was petrified that first cut, and probably all of the other cuts too, but it didn't stop me.
This table was so time consuming because I have three children and those little stinkers take up at lot of time. I am positive if I could have dedicated a day or two just to this project, I would have been done sooner. I underestimated how much time needs to be dedicated to sanding and staining and sanding and sanding :) I also underestimated how heavy this table is. I needed help to turn this table right side up.
All in all, I could not be happier with the finished project.
It's finally here! Get all the details on my first book!
