Took an old Singer Sewing machine base and widened the legs and welded new brackets for strength. I had some red cedar, sanded and 2 coat epoxy.

This is really nice. The cedar and the black really look good together. Beautiful table

I’ve always liked tables made from these sewing machine legs. I have couple of sets in storage BUT never made time to make anything from them. THIS inspired me….....
I like your cedar top !

Clever project.
I read that you used the epoxy finish. I don’t normally prefer a high gloss look on any project but for this specific one it was the right choice as it looks phenomenal.
Well done.
