I needed a reading table for my classroom and knew I enjoyed the look of Ana’s tables. I took the dining room table plans and edited the length, width, and hight for my classroom. I sanded, stained the wood before cutting. Then made the cuts as I went along double checking the measurements. I did use pocket holes and sanded the rough spots with a touchup on stain. I used 2-3 coats of 3x thick clear poly on the table with sanding in between with 300 grain sandpaper. Light enough to make it smooth with out taking the poly off. The stain was golden oak to match the coat/backpack rack I made next. Thank you so much Ana for the help in making something so beautiful!!
