Square(-ish) Version of the Balustrade Coffee Table

I loved the RH-inspired Balustrade Coffee Table that I built for my parents, I decided to make one for our living room! Ours had to be more of a square though, to fit our space more appropriately, so I modified the dimensions. This affected our shopping and cut lists, of course. Check out the blog post for more info.
