Well after completing the console table I decided to change the sizes a little and create an entry table and stain it to match my great great grandmothers mirror that we have. That mirror has to weigh 50lbs. It turned out great and I did sanding and staining before putting it together which saved a lot of time trying to get into all of the corners. Then just had to ploy and stain the edges of the top once finished.
This is approximately half the width of the console table so calculations were fairly easy to figure out.
