As a solo and novice woodworker, it took me a while to get used to the pocket hole jig and longer to cut the wood myself but eventually it all came together. To ensure I could get it out of the house if I move, I used circle 8 desktop fasteners to fasten the plywood top to the risers. I am proud I finished and love to use the table now for both craft work and breakfast on the weekends.
Shelves are pine with Minwax oak stain
Paint is Valspar chalk paint: Kid Gloves for the outside and Bonnet Ribbon for the interior, all finished with Satin finishing wax.
