I love this! Awesome job and thank you for the tute, I don't have space for a new table but I'm bookmarking this for future use.

Wow! This came out really great! I love how vibrant the colors on the wood look. I would love to have something like that in my living room  Smiley

Is ordinary... with a little extra.

I think what people at this site create is so much better than anything that can be "from the shelf" of a store, and your project is a prime example of that. This is very beautiful! I love the varied-colored top, which presents a sense of "balance" in the tone, even with the different colors of wood. Great job!

Thanks, it was pretty simple to make (just time consuming due to all the staining and such) and I'm lucky that whenever I visit my parents I have access to SO many tools.

I'll probably be posting other tutorials later as I'm in the process of silver leafing a dresser and making an ottoman out of a washtub.

Cool item. I love the practicality. Anyone can find something like this at a yard sale and easily find these tools themselves. It looks wonderful and your tute was easy to follow along. Thank you!

I'm glad it was easy to follow along (sometimes things make sense in my head but become incoherent when I try to put them to words) -- and I definitely recommend doing this... it was a fun, easy project... not the quickest due to drying times and having to clamp things down... but worth it.

People that have come to my house since have commented on that table and asked me where I got it... and it can take a table with such a cheap looking top (that top was horrid and only maybe 1/2 inch thick... if that) and make it look way more expensive.
