This is first piece of furniture I’ve made to date. Used pine to keep the cost down. The table is 38” tall 18” deep and 59” wide. Used a red oak stain, then 3 coats of lacquer with wet sanding between the first 2. Used 600 grit sand paper. On final coat I sanded with a 2000grit paper. Once all sealed I used square nails as detail. Non skid pads on the feet of the table. The top was all butt joints, the frame was all mortise/tenon.

Thanks for checkin it out

Great looking table.Well done.Sofa table is an elegant piece of furniture.This great piece of furniture does not take up much room and gives you a place to add decor.The only problem is making sure you pick a piece that matches up to the rest of the look that you have already created in the room.
