Coffee Table [Modern Farmhouse Collection]

Decided this table looked like something a moderately skilled person could handle and I was right. I made one modification because I couldn't find any straight 1x10s and I didn't want to use plywood since it can look wrong when staining. I decided to go with an 8 ft. 2x10 instead but then accidentally bought a 2x8. Realizing this after cutting all the boards to length, I fixed my screw up by squaring up the long edges of a 2x4 and adding it up the middle of the top and bottom shelves using pocket joinery like the standard plans. The table turned out a bit heavier than the standard plans would have, but it has a very solid feel. My wife loves it and I am looking forward to adding the end tables.
