    while this will never be mistaken for fine furniture....

    it made pop happy. while i was busy planing the boards for my nephew's table, pop came out and asked if i would make him a table with this top that he had found in the basement. he wanted it to replace the old console (non working) tv that he was using for the skate sharpener, and as a table for desserts during the holidays. he said to use the 2x4's that were in the garage (i used only the good ones). since it was to be built stout, i did up the base from the design of the benches that i use (very adaptable design). when all was said and done, and with his ok, we used 6 nails to fasten the top to the base. his reasoning is that it will be covered any way, and no one will see them.

    You're a good son Dan. That table should surely fit the need, and stout!
