I made this table for my company’s entry way. It is made out of 2×4’s from Home Depot. The legs are attached via mortise and tenon. The top was done with a cheap torch, wiped down with a damp rag and then lightly sanded. The base is painted with a Sherman-Williams semi-gloss.

juts a little help. While I can not see the END GRAIN of your wood stock, its common practice to alternate the CUPPED curve of your end grain. I forgot this on a table top and place all the end grain concave CUP side all up in the same direction and need up with a top that was C shaped. SO one should alternate CUP-UP CUP-DOWN on the end grain.
