Needed to get my wife’s printer off the floor.
I had an old piece of composite marble that came out of an end table, I was able to cut it down to fit this project.
Also I started with some beautiful rough sawn Mahogany

I had no way to plane this stuff, and I wanted to keep a piece of it, the full 15” width that it was for the bottom shelf. So I built this sled for Router that would ride on a couple stainless steel pipes that would lay nice and flat on bench on either side of work piece.

Do one side then flip and do the other.

Worked great!

Stained, then Rubbed in some more stain with some 600 grit – before assembly, I like to fill a little of the grain this way. Assembled all then just rubbed in several coats of paste wax.

My wife still needs to pick out a handle for cedar bottom drawer.
Thanks for looking!

You really made this table stand out with your design. I like the mahogany, it finishes well. Your sled is a wonderful idea. Composite marble, is that a manmade material for countertops?

Thanks for looking Guys,
Yes Don, I believe that is what it was, manmade material for countertops.
