My Rustic X Coffee Table

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.
