I made this table for a benefit raffle to raise money for a former teacher undergoing cancer treatment. I was given short notice so leg joinery is pocket screws. I would have rather cut mortise and tenon joint but time did not permit it.

I sprayed the base with clear laquer to seal the wood, I then sprayed it with a spray can of Valspar. I do not recall the color. I only had a couple day turn around to make it. I built it in a night and finished it the next couple of days.

Simple but elegant looking, like the painted slim legs combined with the natural top. Beautiful work!

I usually I despise painting wood, but the pine I used had alot of mineral streaking that was very unattractive. The color combination looked appealing to my eye. By painting it, I was able to save some time on my finishing.

Have your say...
