My sweetums wanted a high table for folding laundry and other laundry activities in the basement. Made this table out of pine scraps mostly leftover from my workbench. Pretty sturdy and doesn’t look too bad for plywood. I gained a lot of knowledge about how not to construct a table from this project. Future tables will be much improved from this experience. Luckily this one lives in the basement :)

Finished with minwax medium cherry and polycrylic. First time using polycrylic. I like it, but I had a lot of trouble with bubbles. Might be my old brush that I never can seem to get really clean. Or that the plywood was low-grade and never really sanded super-smooth. Seems to get to wavy after much sanding…

Re: Bubbles. Most likely caused by the type of brush being used and your technique rather than sanding issues.
The table looks great and is serving its intended purposes : )

Hmmmmmmm. She does laundry and you get to do woodworking. I would say you got the better deal out of that one.
Nice table, well done.

Looks good to me Logan as long as I’m not involved in the laundry end of the process.
