My dad is a woodworker in his spare time. I asked for a sofa table or entry table for my house.

As luck would have it, my cousin returned an old solid oak table to my parents that was originally my parents 20+ years ago.

He used the top of the table to make the top of mine and the bottom shelf. Then he built the legs.

I am so happy with it and canít wait to put it in the new house!

That is a great table! I would get a simple woodburning pen from Michael's and have your dad sign the bottom.
