My First Build

Submitted by clarky316 on Sun, 03/11/2018 - 18:02

This was my first big furniture piece that I've built. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I used 5/4 poplar for the tops instead of the 2x10s for the table and 2x6s for the benches that the plans called for. Finished the tops with Minwax Early American stain then 3 coats of satin oil based polly. Finished the bottoms with water based Minwax tinted River Stone then coated with water based polly.

You did a great job, especially for your first big piece.

I love the River Stone color you chose for the bases, beautiful combination.
