  • Love the design of your tabletop! Did that take you a long time? I've been wanting to try a pattern like that!
    By Smashingdiy, on January 5, 2017
    • Hey, Thank You. OMG...seemed to have taken for ever. So many miter cuts and so many pocketholes underneath...LOL I first made the center cross members and numbered them 1-4 underneath (I worked on the underside of the table, not knowing what the top would look like). Then I cut each board to it's respective "section" and labeled them to be placed in the same order - in case they didn't fit in another section. When all done, I glued and pocket holed each section to each other. Found the center and jigsaw cut the table. At 64" it's a huge table. Same with the lazy susan, but I wanted to contrast it with the table, so I went with the straight slats. The top is actually removable with bolts (customers request). I sandwiched the base to the top and put 4 bolts on each table skirt.

  • Wow! What a beautiful table- you really picked the perfect design to emphasize the beauty of the cedar wood. Love the look of the table both with and without the Lazy Susan.

  • You cut that with a Jigsaw!? That's really impressive. I made a round table a while ago, cut it with a router but I couldn't imagine trying to cut it with a jigsaw. Looks awesome, good work!

    • Yes, Thank You. And it wasn't pleasant. The locking mechanism on the jigsaw broke so it would angle about 3-5 degrees so, there was a lot of sanding involved. Good thing I gave myself some room for error. I was going to use the router, but I have never done it and I was nervous, so I went with what I am comfortable with.

  • What a great idea! This will be something your son will get a lot of use out of for years to come!

    • Thank you every much ryobi nation. He really loves the toy box even though I still have to stain it and seal it once it warms up outside. I upload the finished pictures once I am 100%. We have cats and I didn't want to get them sick from the smell from the sealer in the house and with the weather being cold here I can't really take it outside until late march/April

  • You are both incredibly talented! You did a great job building the table, and your wife did an amazing job on the painting. This is an heirloom piece of furniture for sure.

  • This is such a cool idea! What a great way to encourage your son's creativity. Really awesome job on the lighting and the finish, too.
    By RYOBI Nation, on January 5, 2017

  • I love it. You might as well teach him young the right way to do things. Safety first. Hope you both enjoy!

  • Awesome solution! It takes up hardly any space, but has enough surface and storage to do the job of a full-sized coffee table. Great work!

  • What a special way to give purpose to the wood. Judging from the variety of wood, it looks like this may have been what your father had in mind for the wood all along! Great work- thanks for sharing!

  • I'm sure he loved it. It looks great. Where did you get the plans? I've always wanted to make a glider but haven't found a plan I like. Honestly, I'm not wanting to have to come up withe the gliding idea/plan on my own.
    By mrpip, on January 5, 2017
    • I just looked at bench type glider that you can buy at Lowes or Home depot.I just measured that one and split it in half to make a single seat glider,I used 1x2's instead of the wider boards because they were cheaper and I like the looks of the smaller boards. Had to order the metal glider ,this was the first one I made,I have made full size one,I never keep one for me always give them to someone that liked it. Hope this helped,thanks for liking.
