Wife wanted to buy one but I talked her out of it. Design was based on one we saw on Target’s website. Made out of red oak and used Classic oak Polystain. Put together with the mini kreg jig and glue. After this project, I may need to invest in the larger jig model. After borrowing a 48 inch clamp from a friend, I went out today and got 2-48” Jorgensen cabinet clamps to go with all my others.

I see you choose to leave the edges plain. Turned out great, good job.
