Bought the legs from Osbornewood. Made similar to a table the wife saw at Pottery Barn, though adjusted the demensions and added a drawer. It’s made of cheap white board (I’m assuming Pine) from Lowes. I’ll wait to invest in more expensive woods until I know what I’m doing.

The finish was minwax provencial which i then sanded and toped with english walnut, then two coats of dansih oil, then 2 of poly. still thinking of adding the minwax finishing paste wax to the legs to try and bring up a sheen.

All in all, a good learning experience!

Very nice piece of work.

I did a Pottery Barn knock off too. Built a dinning room buffet.

I refuse to pay Pottery Barn prices when I can make it.

Wow, looks great. How did you join the top and bottom to the legs?
