This was a great project! I didn't use the 2x6's for the top, as one wasn't quite straight. I used some pretty poplar I had in the basement and it worked beautifully. I wouldn't use poplar for a high-use project but this table top won't see much abuse.  Used pocket holes to connect them and used finish nails and glue to attach to the apron. Minwax Provincial stain and wipe-on poly in gloss. 5 coats on the top and shelves. 3 on the rest. This is a really sturdy, beautiful piece. And so cheap! Took 2 weekends  - a few hours here and there and time in between poly coats.
