I began working on a slim entrance table frame and shortly after adding a top to it, my friend mentioned getting himself a bar table. I told him what I was working on and soon enough, I turned this entrance table into a table that could be used in his dining room as a bar for his bottles, glasses and maybe even a wine rack.
The table itself is a mish-mash of woods, but primarily pine 2×4’s for the legs and framing, with 1/2” plywood top and 1/4” plywood bottom shelf, with pine supports and moulding of various thicknesses. I mixed walnut and pine stains (3 coats) to get a shade of golden brown, and I covered it with 5 or 6 hand rubbed layers of oil-based gloss varnish. I also learned (as I am still a beginner) how impossible it is to hide woodfiller on a piece you plan on staining. Unfortunately, some of the holes I made and covered up with it now show more predominantly, but I think it adds to the character of the piece.
Overall, a nice step up in terms of what I’ve been working on, and my friend couldn’t be happier.
Let me know what you think!
