Made this table for my Fiance’s Christmas present. She wanted something extendable but with a good amount of leg room as I will be building a storage bench for it as well.

I jointed the base with mortise and tendons, my first time making joints like that.

The sliders are from Osborne wood products, I was very pleased with them.

I finished the table with Bear Enamel.

Looks great. I like the spareness of the design.

What is the top made from? How was the enamel applied?

Originally I had a plywood top with maple edging but I had a hard time getting a perfectly smooth and seamless joint. So I ended up getting a couple pieces of prejoined stain grade boards.

For the enamel I rolled the top with a foam roller and brushed the rest.

Forgot to mention that I designed the table in sketchup. It really helped with making the table proportions look good. Not to mention a very nice cut list.
