Sold our funiture with our old house so we needed some new stuff for our newer house. We bought the log couch from a local Amish builder but I didn’t want to spend another 4-500$ on log tables so I made the tables. Simple and basic Nothing fancy at all. Just 2×6 pine tops and legs and 1×4 wrapping it all together. Solid as a rock so far since my two 2 year olds haven’t tore them up….yet.

Good work on your first try. Solidly built and nice use of repeating styles to get the end tables to match the other.

Nice work. It goes good with the couch and looks durable enough to withstand what your children will do with it.

Should work great for the next 18 years—no sense buying new furniture till the kids are 20 or so anyway!

Thanks guy. And yeah I didn’t really want anything to valuable for the kids to crawl and color on or bounce on. I was please with how they turned out. At some point ill have to try putting a drawer in some tables

Very nice. Tables all look like they will last your family a very long time, nice and sturdy.
