My Dad and I made this years ago when I had no furniture. The only things I would have changed would be: no chmfer on the underside of the top’s edge and I would have liked it darker.

Thanks for all the nice comments. I don’t think you want pictures of the mission rocj\ker though. It’s made by Flexsteel. I may copy it one of these days, though

Looks Great! My wife has asked for a Mission Style Sofa Table, which will be a narrower version of this – it’s great to see this, prior to my build. Don’t change anything.

How did you finish this?

It was finished with a honey oak stain and 5 coats of a wiping polyurethane. If I had to do it again, I would have used a chestnut stain and General Finish’s Oil and Urethane. I only found that finish afterward and it is now my favorite. This table has held up well for many years now and still looks new even with 2 kids!
