Craft table with Oak Plywood and Chalk Paint

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Sun, 06/18/2017 - 09:29

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.
