Submitted by b25pilot on Wed, 06/24/2020 - 14:35

Started down this road on May 30th 2020. First it was the $40 Coffee Table (Which cost me $47 in wood from Lowes) Highly recommend a Miter-saw with a long enough fence to make identical cuts, I learned my lesson. Cut and built the table over the weekend. Had some trouble with the X's on each end, do not use the dimensions in the plans for the X's they were 3 inches to small. (Watch the video and follow Ana's technique.) Sanded all the wood stained with Jacobean 2750 tint Minwax and sealed with Satin Polycrylic. After it was finished my wife asked for the matching side tables see the other Brag Post. See Photos for Details.
