Basic Table i built out of Maple and poplar with pre-made pine legs. this is the first table i’ve made so it was a bit of a learning experience. Especially the top which i (attempted) to dowel together. it ended up attached (eventually) but rather skewed vertically. so i ended up doing a lot of planing and sanding to get the boards somewhat even and level. The box to hold the legs was tricky as well because i had never tried to build a mitered box before so the glue up was very frustrating at first. i eventually figured out a way to drill a hole through all the mitered joints, run a dowel through so it was sticking out at both end, and running really long guitar binding rubber bands all the way around it to secure it while it dried. the end result came out rather nice for my first attempt.
