Did this plan this past week and it went very well! Easy to follow instructions and looks awesome!
We are staining with 3 coats of Minwax Jacobean and then will do a layer of Minwax gray.
The only additional comment would be to add a matching bench plan and to have 48" clamps when you do the table top. We have a Worx Pegasus work table and horses, but that is only good for 2 of the top pieces--bigger clamps would've been the way to go.
Try to get the straightest wood possible, of course, and go to multiple stores if you have to--it makes the difference when it all gets pieced together.
In all, great project for a beginner, extremely sturdy, and the plans are perfect!
