My very first project of making furniture, a couple of simple clear pine tables with some leftover tiles I had from a previous project.

things I learned:
- I need to be more precise
- I need to do a better job sanding and finihsing.

These are abby-normally good… especially for your first tables!

I like them. Does the borg sell individual tiles, or do they make you buy a pack? If they’ll do onesies, twosies, I might have to put this on my list of things to do.

Lol nice.

My local HD sells single tiles, they carry 4-5 styles all pretty bland, but you grab one and go

Hi Abby,

Try your local tile shop. The probably have lots of sample boards that they will probably give you for nothing. You may have to pry them of the backing boards, but they will be free. There are lots of other places to get stuff rather than HD.

Great tables by the way. I still have some I built about 30 years ago, good to see how you progress over the years. Good luck in your future ww projects. You can learn a lot from this site.

Thanks jb
