With Pinterest inspiring the nation, I was contacted about building a dining room table based on a coffee table that the client had seen on Pinterest. Challenge accepted!
This project had a lot of steps to it, which meant I couldn't do it all in one go (which was a bit of pain), but it also meant that I could do it around whatever else was going on in life.
I glued, and nailed (from the side like installing hardwood flooring) all of the pieces onto the main plywood board that was serving as the base of the whole thing. Then I had to sand it all flat, taking off whatever edges were rough enough to tip a drinking glass if it wasn't set in the right spot.
