This table is made from Colorado beetle kill pine and finished with a satin wipe on poly. I filled the bug holes with epoxy, some of the tunnels went so deep into the board it took several pours to fill them. It seats four comfortably.
To see how I built it please watch the Video below.

Nice. It closely matches the two BKP side tables I built recently. Did you buy the pine special or just pick it from the pile at a yard? I’ve had good luck picking it at our local big box home center, Menards.

Happy New Year May I ask what glue you used to laminate those pieces together? Was it standard polyvinyl acetate (PVA) glue?

I have a friend shortly to laminate a coffee table together and would like to offer him the right glue to use.

Kind Regards

I bought it from a local hardwood supplier. I rarely buy anything from those large faceless corporation big box stores, unless I have to. Here in Colorado we have an out,break of the beetle bore and it is killing pine trees. The result is the gray color in the wood as fungus and what not starts to break the tree down.

I use TiteBond extend adhesives almost exclusively in my shop for most glue ups. I also use west systems epoxy for gluing joinery and things that will be sculpted because it is gap filling.
