This was my first build so I learned a lot!!! I love this table but looking back I know more now than I did then and would have done things a little different. I would have plancked the top using my Kreg Jig Jr. and looked for straighter boards at Home Depot. I also altered the design for the look that I wanted, a rustic one. The table is 44" square and stand 43.5" tall. I also mitered the corners of the top outside boards wanting to give it a more finished looked. It took me about 3 days of nap times to build. We use it almost every night to eat dinner. I found the chairs at Habitat for Humanity and have plans to build a few more. My Husband thinks I should paint the table and distress to match the chairs, but that has not happened yet. All together I had a great time and learned a ton.
