Welcome to the site!

The table: I think your design looks good with a bottom shelf. You might find it useful as well, for those magazines you need to get out of the way for coffee time. As for the round over, Since your design is very square the square edge might compliment it. As for the little one, maybe just knock the edge down with sandpaper so it is not too sharp. But go with your gut feeling in the end… This is your design and your project! And since it is your first, you will inevitably learn a ton.

The scraper: Did you see my video? I suppose I am the main advocate for scrapers lately, but you ask if it is worth the investment… Of course it is, they only cost about $10 BUCKS! Hardly an investment at all. It will cost less than ONE of your coffee table legs!

-- Happy woodworking!
