Absolutely in love with this table. It turned out even better than we thought since this was my first diy project. We didn’t want to spend thousands of dollars buying a table similar to one we could make ourselves so we decided to give it a go. Our biggest issue with building it was the wood warping. We could only work on it every other weekend so the wood starting moving and it wasn’t on a flat surface. Definitely tie it down to a flat surface if you can’t build it all in a few days. We reinforced the breadboards with pocket holes on the inside and out because the first time we only did the inside, it snapped off. We used a lot of glue the second time around. Will definitely be making more tables in the future.
