The is my first wood project ever so not sure what to write explain or really how to what I all did. My wife sent me a picture of a table and I thought it was cool and decided to make it. I didn’t use plans just winged it and did what I thought looked and felt right. For the top I drilled pocket holes and secured the wood together. Thinking I should have done a few more or at least some wood glue as well. There was some small gaps that I found. The bottom shelf I used a nail gun and afterwards regret the short cut and wish I would have screwed the bottom together like the top for a better fit. I learned how to not stain on this project. I first used a bristle brush on the entire base in less than an hour. I went too quick and the project looked horrible with the uneven stain and brush marks. I spent about 6-8hrs re-sanding and then used a foam brush and rag, this time I took a lot of time and was carful not to go fast. I know there are a lot of flaws with this first project that I can learn from, but I am happy how it turned out. I went and gave this to my aunt and can’t wait to make something new for someone else. Please let me know what you think and ask me questions. More questions I get the better and more informed I know I will be. Thanks yall.
