Benchright Coffee Table

Great fun Easy Project! I am in absolute love with this table and give it the rustic feel and look that we were going for. We tried to get the knottiest pine that we could find with also the different colors. We love that look of pine!

It's good to know I'm not the only one who likes the knots and swirls and different shades in the pine boards! The last time I was at the lumberyard, when I told the lumberyard-guy that I was building furniture he tried to direct me to the clear pine. I had to explain to him that I like the character that the knots and such give to a piece. He thought I was nuts, but he still helped me find the straightest boards in the rack.

Hi I love your piece and think it came out great. I noticed on the original plans that 2 x6 pieces were listed. Did you use them in your project?
