Benchright Coffee Table

I used Douglas Fir instead of pine, which increased the cost but I love the warmth of the wood in this piece.  The instructions were pretty easy to follow once I got going, and the longest part of it was the staining process.  I love this piece and I'm ready to do another one!

Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Douglas Fir
Finish Used
I used Cabot's Espresso with 3 coats to get the darker, warmer tint I was looking for. I like the Cabot Espresso because it's a water-based stain & sealer, and because it dries REALLY fast.
