Why not build a simpler table like this one?

Kidding but not kidding. Had to put it out there since its a woodworking themed page.

This one seems simpler yet pretty nice looking on Ana White’s page.

I think over time a lot of her project might have some woodworking blunders but they do look nice in the pictures. For simplicity, a lot of the things that are wrong might not show their face in the time you are planning to own the table. If you screw it together and it last a few years. Win!!! I’m sure my wife would like thoughs designs and I can build a project that simple fairly quickly. If you want them to last for centuries, your grand kids might find issues but is that really your concern right now.

My recommendation is don’t over complicate it. This is a problem many of us on this page should admit to doing way to often. Simpler can be better. Its a craft table. It mostly depends on where and what you plan to make on it. If you have to build it again in a few years. Hey, another excuse to play with tools. That would be a win for me. ;)
