Here is my first table ever! I have a small space and only one wall that i could put the TV on, but in my apartments, I cant hang the tv on the wall – so I went looking for a table to fit after 2 months of looking – I finally went to “L” and found everything that i would need, and started building. I used a hand saw, small 12vt screwdriver, hamer, nails, wood glue, chisel set, and sander. I am still looking for the Mosaic Tile for the top.

Great little table. An idea for the tiles, you can hit garage sales or flea markets and try to find colors of cheap ceramic dinner plates or bowls and break them up and use the pieces as tiles. Also, both great places where you can score nice hand tools for cheap (some times).

,since it has so much weight on thin legs I was wondering how the legs are joined to the table?
