built out of scrap white cedar from work, [i geuss iv’e got a good supply of that stuff.] the heater in my shop still doesn’t work to good.[lol] learning alot about glueing, dado’s, tenons. waiting for a bit wormer to finish it. the top took alot of hand planing to get the distressed look, [going the wrong way i think]. i like the way it looks though, the legs were cut freehand on the table saw, havnt gotten a chance to make that jig thingy i keep seeing on ljc, i did make a tenon jig so that helped alot. i have limited tools and experience, so i’ll take all the tips i can get, and yes even bad remarks will help. everyone has different ideas and skill levels, the only way to learn is to try. thanks for looking, and feel free to speak.

Wonderful job on the table. it looks strong. Is there finish on it? I only ask to point out expansion and contraction of wood can be reduced with a simple finish. Thank you for Sharing.
