Here is a table I built about a year ago out of pine and stained it dark walnut. I put two coats of poly on it.
Every piece is hand made , from the post being turned on the old craftsman lathe from the 40’s to the old Craftsman jointer . Anyways it was a fun project and I thought it was good for a 15 year old (I’m older know).

Hope you enjoy the project.

Thanks, Michael Frey

It is good!

It certainly looks a lot better than the things I build at age 15!

Michael, that’s great work. That’s a beautiful table. Keep it up and you’ll be a master by the time your 20.
