So first attempt at making a piece of furniture. Wife wanted a “sofa table” that could double as seating for 3 when we entertain. The table measures 24×72, is counter height and made of popular. Numerous areas for improvement however for a first attempt I am pretty happy.

It looks very nice. As seating, 24” high would seem a bit too tall, but it may be infrequent. Was that determined by the height of the sofa?

Nice looking table. Are you going to leave it natural like that, or are you topcoating it with something?

The height was determined by the sofa and Kitchen island – we have a space for a table between the kitchen and living room that my wife wants to keep open ye wanted the flexibility of having a spot to sit and eat at when we have larger gatherings. We will see how this works Christmas eve when we have 35 people or so here. We may lower it a couple of inches after that we will see. Thank you.

My wife wants to chalk paint it then use a clear poly to seal it.
