Here’s one from the archives back a few year’s ago when my tool selection was very limited. One of the first attempts at using a router to add a little something to the leg design. Hand-held routing; before I owned a router table. One table top edge had a knot that showed up on the reveal but it adds charactor.

Looks good Pop. What kind of wood and finish is that?

The top was cut from a select pine, the sides are #2 grade pine and the legs were made from 2×2’s. I used pocket hole joinery for assembly. The finish is Early American followed up with a couple of coats of Poly.

Great table.

Have you improved since then?
