This is my 3rd project overall, and my 1st big furniture piece. The table top and 6 side pieces of the base are cherry, and the rest of the base is poplar. First all the cherry was finished with Sam Maloof oil/poly, and then the entire table was coated with spar urethane. Doweling and glue were used for all the joinery, no screws or nails in the entire thing. I copied The Wood Whisperer’s design for his “Not so rustic rustic outdoor/indoor table”, but I shrank down the dimensions to fit my apartment. Total cost was around $350 and took about a month to build, but it was completely worth it! Criticism very welcome.
