I made two of these tables and they were pretty fun, but were a little more work than I thought they would be. All of the wood is kiln dried douglas fir, as the first table top I made warped as it was green wood and not the look I was going for. I shortened the length to 72" so I had to adjust the angles for the center pieces. I decided to build the tables, stain it, them took them apart and glued important joints, prior to staining the tables a second coat to avoid the glue standing out. I also used 4x4's instead of sandwiched 2x4's as I thought it looked nicer that way. I finished with 9 coats of polyurethane on the top and than a coat of wax using 0000 steel wool to get all the little imperfections out.
Plus Poly, sandpaper and screws.
