Some time ago I built a bench to fit a bay window.
Recently the owner wanted a table to match. I had some old table parts laying around for years and thought this would be a great time to send them on their way. With a little math and an angle finder I reshaped the top from round to octagon. Made an apron around the bottom. Put on a nice golden oak finish and sent it on its way.

Nice build, and a good use of some old pieces.

Nice re-purposing of the round table pieces. The new table looks like a perfect fit, and is a great match to the built-in bench. Nice work.
