Using the plans for the modern table and simple stools, I made some modifications so it could be a bar height pub table and stools. The stools took the most time, with all the supports and keeping it level. The table was easy and I am super happy with the addition of the x's on the sides. I think it gives it a more professional look. Turned out that the angle I wanted them at wasn't possible on my miter saw, so I just had to mark the angles and cut with a jig saw. Screws were overkill for them and split the wood, so finishing nails did the job. The top was salvaged from an old ugly mdf topped coffee table. I sanded it a bit and with many coats of stain, achieved a match to the rest of the wood. Yay! Breakfast nook, complete!
Nice job! Also looks like it'd be a great place for conversation while someone is working in the kitchen .
Thank you Linda! Great idea!
What are the dimensions here for your table? I'm looking to make/get one very much like this and trying to figure out the best yet least amount of counter space needed, depth wise. Hoping 15" is enough but I love the look of yours.
