When I read GaryK blog on making a pie crust table I knew I wanted to make something using a pie crust top. OK My top not round but I used a similar technique.
I started in shetchup and designed a table that I thought would look good. For me his is just a planning stage, I never have built from plans. They are just for overall dimensions everything else has to fit to existing pieces.
The plan looks good but who wants drawers that are too small for a sheet of paper. As you can see a lot of things got changed during the build. There is no finish on it right now. The sides look to plain. Still thinking about how to give them a better look. Guess I will have to update this later.
