First real wood working project. I have made a couple of other things but with this I bought some rough walnut and maple, planed the wood and built this.
I just made the design up as it came together. The top is 20×40 and it is about 20” tall.
Pretty happy with it, finished with BLO.
It’ll hold a tv, and DVD player, maybe some other junk.
My wife really likes it and that is what is important when I need more tools for the next projects.

Let me know what you think.

Good looking table there Eggman, and very true about the wife liking it. I have being divorced now for just over a year and one good thing is that I can buy whatever I want whenever I want. Down side is I must do evrything for myself. :-). Hope to see many more projects from you.

-- Create, create, create create. It makes my blood flow. And what better material to use than wood, you can repeat the same object 1000 times and none will look the same in natural form.

I love the way you did e legs. Thats a grat idea! I might suggest a router for your next purchase – it would give a nice look to this to round over the edges with. Once you have kids they tend to fall and cut themselves on those sharp wood edges. Great work – keep it up!
