I made this table for my mother in law for Christmas this year.
First off I started with some 3 inch thick rough cut pine I got from an old saw mill that had it sitting around for close to 35 years. The glass is from an old entry door that I salvaged and inset it into the top. This was my first attempt at tenons, but I took my time and they turned out great. I finished it by applying a preconditioner first and letting it set for 2 hours before putting on a coat of Minwax special walnut stain. I followed it up by spraying 4 coats of satin polycrylic clear from Minwax and sanding after each coat. I am very pleased with the final result of the table. But more importantly my mother in law absolutely loved it.
Thanks to all the help I got from all my fellow lumberjocks with all the advice and inspiration.
