Nooooo thank you. Set a glass of ice water down even once without a coaster and the top is ruined. That water ring will be highly visible and never come out. I truly appreciate you /diy/ing something and it looks s lot nice than most lumber coffee tables. That said, I probably would have just got a coffee table for free/spent the $30 for a coffee table off Craigslist. Would look more like adult furniture. The effort you put into it is definitely 5/7 (minus the power strip, need to clean that up) but it's very "bachelor pad-ish"
Of course this is coming from a grumpy 29 year old man who just dropped $600 on a coffee table that the top can rise up on. For a bachelor pad/party house where beer is spilled everywhere and it can be roughed up without anyone caring, it's perfect. Again, better looking than most lumber coffee tables. Wasn't trying to shit on your work considering its function, good job bro.
Actually the top is that resin crap mdf on top of plywood, and so far it's held up to quite a few spills. I'm sure eventually something will get through that resin stuff though. Craigslist was my first thought for actual furniture and probably would've been cheaper but I figured what the hell this will be a fun project.
Also no offense taken, I know it ain't the hottest shit around. I am however surprised that it came out as good as it did considering I walked into Home Depot and bought everything without any sort of planning whatsoever and then just went at it.
>>940781 Yes /diy/ was actually the first board on 4chan. Moot was working on some class assignment and started the website so others could share stuff they were working on, ask questions, etc. and it just kinda caught on. A shitton of people used to post here, you should have seen some of the projects. But some people were spamming so moot was forced to add the anime sideboard due to weaboo pressure and it all went downhill from there. Other boards were then added, etc. and it turned into what it is today. That's a pretty vague summary, but I think they have the details on wiki.
looks like the perfect kind of table for a man cave. but like >>940663 I’m also curious as to how you got everything fit so nicely, especially the beveled cuts (assuming you did not use any power tools yourself)?
OP here, I'll answer some questions >>940663 I used a straight edge and clamps with a skill saw and a triangle to cut the 45's >>940650 No smoking in the house so nope. >>940626 Thank you, yeah it's hardboard, couldn't remember what it was called but that's what it is. The hardboard is only laid on top with a couple nails around it so I can replace it if I need to.
