This was my first real woodworking project, I changed the plans slightly to fit our needs and decided to use a 4X4 beam as a support instead of the pipe listed in the plans. Overall the build was straightforward and a lot of fun!

I really like the look of this table and will be attempting to
Build it in the next week or so. However as is the case with these projects measurements always seem to be missing, this makes for wastage an frustrations.!!
Width measurments etc!!

I wanted this table to be longer and wider. I added breadboards to the end to add a nice touch. The build was pretty easy although I made many mods on it. I used 4 2x10 and 1 2x8 on the table top. I trimmed the sides to get them even. I bought a 3/4x5 black iron pipe, attached it to the legs and layed it on the table bottom to get my attachment location. I used threaded inserts but when I tried to flip the table the inserts fell out. So I used small screws to hold the inserts in. I finished it with grey and Jacobean stain. 4to1. Added flat poly to finish it. Took about 60 total hours for me to make from start to finish.

Used the general concept to make a very similar table. Thanks!

First attempt at true wood work. I have built numerous tings over the years, but never anything of substance. This was a very basic and easy to follow plan. I did my first table using Cedar. I sanded it down smooth and used a light stain. Used an antique door painted sage for the desk top. Wife loves it in the office. Used lag bolts to attach the door (desk top) so it could be removed if we need to move the desk. Used glass top. Ill post pictures in a few.

Very easy build. This was my first big project. Love the table I used pine with a dark walnut stain. best way to get the top even it to take 2x4 one on top one on bottom and use wood shims to get the top even and have clamps to hold the boards tight together and drive your pocket holes in. (If you don't have a planner to even all the boards out.) I also didn't but the middle pipe found the table was super sturdy when put together

Two things I quickly noticed from the photograph that I wanted to change. I brought the legs in 12" to allow seating from the ends. Second, I brought the 2x4 that attaches the leg to table in some so it would not be so noticeable. My daughter also wanted the table bigger so I made it 38" x 96". Turned out great!
