I build this coffee table from white pine and yellow pine for legs. For the finish I gave it distressed look. Was simple to make and inexpensive with no more than $15 of materials. With the little time I have to work on wood projects, it’s a pleasure to see a final finished project, woodworking t’s becoming addictive for me : )

Looks good. Nice job on the distressing…’s easy to go over-board. You applied just enough.
Well done.

It’s beautiful and like the distressed look, very effective technique because it looks authentic. Great job!
