This was a fun project. Used just the standard cheapest wood from home depot. Seems like no matter how hard I work on trying to get good pieces, there is always something off with them. While the main parts of the project didn't take that much time, the sanding took a good deal of time. Maybe ill buy some better wood next time! Used a 60 grit, then a 150, then a 220. Used a minwax stain with a minwax poly in satin. sanded the poly with a 220 not to just get it smooth but to give it a less shiny look. Very happy with the finished product, but every project I learn a few things to bring to the project and improve. This table is very heavy.
