This is a table I just built for my mother-in-law. Last year she gave me a table that she wanted me to refinish. In that time we had a big storm that blew through and part of the roof was blown off, and rain water poured on the table. Ruined it bad. By the time I repaired the roof the table was twisted and bowed. So I cut the table, planned it down, and made it in this table. I did have some before pictures of the table but I lost them when the hard drive on my other computer died. Let me know what you think.
This is also the first project I have ever done without any plans. I never drew up anything; it was all in my head.

I really like this table.

I think its’ beauty the simple elegance of the design.

Nice reuse of a storm damaged table. You turned it into another nice looking table. I expect your mother-in-law loves it.
