I made this table for my wife as a craft table for her scrapbooking hobby. It is my first attempt at anything beyond rough construction quality.

The table is made of 2×4’s for the base and a 3/4 in baltic birch plywood for the top. I selected these materials since they are cheap which allowed me to toss out bad mistakes ( just once !)

There is also a 1*3 pine edging that is attached via dowels/glue. Also my first attempt at mitered corners etc…

The only screws are to attach the base to the table top.

I hope she is happy with it, because I think she will be using this for a long, long time. You’re off to a good start.
