this table was a must. i had the piece of glass that a friend had given me and i was afraid that it would wind up getting broke if i didnt do something. this table is entirely out of pine, no fancy joinery was involved just a lot of measuring and cutting, and cyphering. i am very pleased as this was my first real attempt at any kind of furniture. i used a gunstock stain and several coats of poly.

Looks good. I would say a successful attempt. Is this the new trend here. I remember another LJ recently building a caninet because he had a door. LOL
