Here’s a little table I just finished building for my wife from some plans. I also made some videos of me building it. Came out pretty good, but I did make a few mistakes. Sometimes I find it harder to build from plans than if it were my own design. Anybody else have that issue?

Came out beautiful! Nice clean lines. It will age really nice too.

I do have that issue sometimes. I used to moreso because I would read the instructions once and “think” I understood them perfectly. Nowadays I buy plans in video form, will watch them a couple times, then watch again WHILE I am working on that part of the project, will bring phone or iPad out to the shop. Less mistakes I am making this way.

Very pretty.

I like glass or ceramic pulls but thats just me.

Excellent work. I esp. like the delicate taper on the legs and the lower edge bead. I do that often myself. Adds a touch of style.


Beading adds a lightness.
