First it was the $40 Coffee Table, after it was finished my wife asked for the matching side tables see my other Brag Post. This time I built and used a proper miter saw stand, as well as purchased a new 60t saw blade for cleaner cuts. My wife didn't think they were tall enough so I increased the height by 2" with no need of additional wood. I took my time with these and even bought wood filler to even out and fill the knots. Ana does make it look easy having a workshop, but it wasn't that hard to build in my garage. I hated making the Xs on the Coffee Table and tried a different technique. I decided to notch them using my circular saw and my multi-tool as a plunge cutter. Sanded all the wood stained with Jacobean 2750 tint Minwax and sealed with Satin Polycrylic.
