I was given a few tools last fall and I decided to try woodworking.
I love it.
This table is the first thing I ever made. It is riddled with flaws, but I have this attachment to it. At the time I had only a table saw a planer and a drill. I made a pocket jig from scrap wood and attatched the top. It’s a little wobbly but it’s a tank.

Nice job. It’s good work and now you have something to build other things on.

Never mind the flaws as you call them, the table came out very functional for its intended use, its sturgy and stable. I’ve used that same 2 X 4 design for two work tables in my shop, solid as a rock. Came from one of the magazines, can’t remember which one.
So, now you have a great table to use in you woodworking, have fun.

What a great start to woodworking. No matter how much you do, the first one is always special.
