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

Looks good Rick. Thanks for showing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

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
