This table is built from solid red oak. The “display” part of it is made of plywood with black felt glued to it with 3M spray adhesive. The glass is 1/4” thick plate glass. The dimensions are 4’ X 2.5’ and 19” tall. The finish is Minwax Early American stain and Minwax wipe on poly gloss. The “frame” around the glass is 6” wide so to prevent cupping I joined two strips a little over 3” wide using my glue joint router bit from MLCS woodworking which is a must have for anyone that joins a lot of boards together.
I have approximately $70 in wood and other materials, the glass cost $34, and I had about 35 hours in labor.
