    Solid oak base... mission style... Cherry veneer top. It was a bit trickier than I thought it would be, but it came out ok....

    Wow, that looks awesome. What kind of setup do you have? Is it mostly ad hoc (whatever you had lying around, circular saw, jigsaw, etc.), or did you go out and buy some real woodworking tools?

    I've got a friend who's dad just converted half his garage into a woodworking workshop. He's got a couple really huge bandsaws, a lathe, and some other stuff.

    Sweet table! I've got a buddy who does furniture - he made an armoire and a chest of drawers for our bedroom. It's sooooooooo much better quality than the crap you find at the stores for the price. :thumb:

    I only have a planner, a miter saw and a table saw... I actually slapped 3 saw blades together separated by washers to make my own ghetto "dado" for some of the joints.

    By making this table, it blows my mind that complex furniture is still made completely with hand tools... (Amish... etc.)

    Why don't you have someone make it for you. I had an artist do one for me a few years back. The price wasn't bad and it didn't cost me all the extra $ to buy the equipment.

    Well... making it myself is my... thing... thats the whole point. I have this strange compulsion to do everything myself.

    here is the top... 5 coats hand rubbed poly followed by an auto wax polish:

    I like to build things myself but stained glass doesn't seem fun to me.

    Table looks good man. 50hrs on that bad boy aint bad.

    From someone who has done workworking for over 20 years all
    I can say is you did a first class job! But you do realize you'll never
    be able to walk into a furniture store without saying to yourself that
    I can make that for 1/2 the cost. Workworking is a slippery slope.
