Table was really fun and difficult to complete. It took me about 30 hours to complete. However, it is a real hit in the neighborhood. I used pine and some of the material was really soft and difficult to sand/finish. Decided to paint the pedestals chalk white (wife's inspiration), which was a really good choice. Fitting the center sections of table top to frame was most difficult aspect of project. Thanks Ana for the inspiration!
