Espresso stained X Coffee Table

We loved the dark finish from the Min-wax Espresso stain/sealant, but decided to use white in the X's so we can see the table in low light easier to save our shins.  Came out great and we will do matching end tables, dining table, and a bench outside to draw the five pieces together.


This took me considerably longer than the plans called for, but I have never built any furniture before so I underestimated the sanding required.
