A lot of hard work went into this table, but Im so happy with the result. I followed Ana whites plans closely and read all the Blog comments to help out. I made the table one 1x6 board wider and 4 inches longer to fit my space better. I also used a turnbuckle and threaded pipe for the stretcher to make it look a little more like the Pottery Barn Table. I think it gives it more of an industrial look. I used a red mahogony stain and plenty of polyurethane finish. I still have to build the bench, and i'm looking forward to using the plans from this site.
