I need to make a small dinning table for my Daughter’s tiny apartment. Aprox. 43” X 43” The table not the apartment. It’s only temporary (3 years) and It’s going to get a Espresso (black) Stain on it. So there is no need to get fancy or creative. just a simple table. Seeing how Poplar is not cheap around here. and I’m low on $$ I like to use Plywood. But I have never used Plywood to make furniture before and that’s my problem…So what I need to find out is….
Just in case anyone needs to know: The legs and apron are being made out of Poplar and I’m using a Kreg Jig Pocket Hole System to connect it to the top. and I will be putting a border around the edge. which will also be stained.
One more thing…Please don’t beat me up over the black stain. She wanted it and I put up a good fight but she still won. One of these days I might get that thumb off of me….....Oh who am I kidding?
