Build an X-Brace Console Table for $40!
Wherever my wife and I go nowadays all we see is furniture. This time it was a console table that we really liked at a local furniture store (yes, we troll furniture stores!) I knew I could design and build it for super cheap and it looked great so off I went. Well the problem was, I had plans to go on a ski trip that weekend and well Jamie was going to have to build this one with my plans only because I was off to hit the slopes. She has built some smaller items before but with my supervision and help. This was by far her largest project and first ever unsupervised project. I think she did an amazing job!
