This is the twin of the one I built with the saw inlayed into it (minus the saw). It is similar size with the 3” thick top and 4” legs. I drilled my own pocket holes in the aprons to attach the top( before I had my Kreg jig) with my radial drill press. See my “Table saw” for details on the shinny finish.

Nice looking table. Can you explain how you do your tops? Very nicely done.

What a beautiful use of wood that would otherwise have to be burned to kill the beetles. I’ve got a bunch of bark beetle kill on my property and this gives me some ideas to use it for something other than creating a great big fire in the late fall.

Great job!
