Good friend of mine had some pretty severe heart issues and about died. They are having a silent auction to help raise money to cover the hospital bills. I wanted to build something bigger but I ran out of time. We had one of these under the couch end table thingies (came up with that name myself) we bought quite a few years back and I thought it would only take an afternoon to build one and they are pretty practical. Once I got started I thought it would be just as easy to build two! More money for my buddy!
The second picture is the before pic of the wood. A lot of the wood was cracked down the middle so I had to cut them down to about 3 inch boards after I cleaned them up. Used biscuits to glue up the tops and pocket holes to hold most of it together.
Little bit of stain and three coats of poly made the old wood shine. as you can see the old nail holes and bug holes really added to the look.
The last picture Is the reason why I didn’t have a lot of time! All the extra help in the shop tends to take a little longer!! Wouldn’t trade the help for anything though!
