DH has been given (asked for) the next building project I would like. Oh boy! this one I'm super excited about. I have been wanting a sofa table. I've looked at quite a few online. They are $300-$500 (or more, of course) dollars, so needless to say, I haven't purchased anything.
I saw this one on Etsy via Pinterest
I'm thinking this wouldn't cost more than $75 to make, maybe a little more. WAY better than $550 (plus shipping). I know it won't look exactly like this, but that's ok. It'll be similar and that's the style I'm looking for. He's already said he wants to router a bit around the table top edge.
I'm hoping this happens sooner, rather than later. He needs a trip to the lumber store, which means a trip to the city. Not sure when he's going to feel like doing that. We are going to the city Saturday afternoon/evening, for a dinner with friends, but won't be able to stop at lumber store, so it would have to be a separate trip.
He also has something he wants to make that's his idea. A shoe/boot bench for the laundry room. Something similar to this
Last night he was saying he's anxious to get started on these (it will keep him busy!). I mentioned that I still want a bookcase for the one empty wall in our living room/hallway area. He's decided to make that too. I showed him the one I planned to buy (at some point soon) and I think it's pretty basic and he said he could do something similar like this too
