A few months back my father n law bought a new TV tray for his chair. He went to Wal-Mart & bought this cheap composite crappy plastic table. TV is his life & he broke the table top, when he bought it I told him I would have made him one for the same price. Ah no this was the best you could get, so now he is eating his words LOL. I had to make sure to make the leg’s nice & sturdy because he leans on it all the time. I also made it an inch longer, wider & taller just to prove a point. Enjoy

Nicely done, the contrasting light sapwood to the darker wood looks great, very nice.

Very nice contrast between the cedar colors and the design is terrific. Oh, I think you may have had way too much fun building this project. ;-) well done.
