We used a $35 craigslist table top with a leaf some 50 cent cull MDF pieces and about 80 in screws, paint and wood and got a beautiful counter height dining table! Loved getting to know my Kreg Jr.

Type of Wood
Pine trim with MDF for shelves. The top is Oak
We adapted the plans to make this a counter height table. We ended up with a larger shelf at the bottom so I can fit a nice big basket. The shorter top shelf is perfect for glass jars, platters and napkins. We had bought the chairs on clearance from a local furniture store, we had Sherwin Williams match the stain on the top. Spray painted and rolled the shelves at the bottom black. We ordered the bun feet online as none of the local big box stores had anything that was chunky enough. The 42 inch top is the right size for our room but there's not much leg room and you can't push the chairs all the way under the table because the base is a little too large, but I LOVE the storage space and with the leaf we got, it'll seat 6!
