My take on the benchwright console table

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 03/08/2017 - 15:08

I chose to add an extra plank on the top to have it extend out  a couple of inches on the front.  This was my second furniture build and I'm still learning.  This didn't take me very long and I was able to do it on the sly to surprise my husband.  First project from Ana White and won't be my last.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
$110 including stain
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
furniture grade pine
Finish Used
Both stains are Minwax - top is Colonial Maple and the lower is Espresso. Needed two applications of the maple to get it dark enough for my taste. I forgot to use pre-conditioner on the legs which were plain 2x4 studs, so the grain really showed through, but I'm pleased at how it looks like a combination of the maple and espresso
