I had a bunch of hard wood blanks that an old guy gave that used to turn pens. None of them were big enough to build anything out of so I put together this table top And attached it to a metal frame that I think was a plant stand I also made the bottom shelf. Pictures really don’t do this thing justice. Thanks for Looking…...................Rick

Very nice.
How did you keep those spaces between them? Did you route in a grove or chamfer each side of the plank??

The groves were routed in after the table was glued up took almost as long as building it
