This project started with the purchase of an old 2’ x 10’ “display case top” from an on-line auction.
I ripped the top down to 16” and took a 23” section out of the middle so the moldings would match up when I joined the two parts back together, winding up with a 94” top.
Installed a new plywood top and then built the legs and base.
The next step which I despise was the finishing to match the dining room decor.
The wife likes it, so that is all that matters.
Glad to have this one behind me.
