Rustic Sofa Table

Submitted by klray on Sat, 09/27/2014 - 15:12

I made this table to sit between a sofa and a wall with a window.  Used the Rustic X Console plan as my jumping off point.  I increased the height to meet the window sill and increased the width to the width of the sofa.  I used 2x2s instead of 2x4s for the legs, and 1x6s instead of 2x6s for the top.  I dd not include the middle shelf.  Since the table is sandwiched between a sofa and a wall only the sides are exposed, so I left off the Xs.   Because of this it now serves as a tunnel for the cats and dog.

All in all it basically turned out how I wanted it, though I could have worked on the stain a bit more.
