So BEAUTIFUL!!I followed the plans on their site… And didn’t have many problems!
Lets take a look at my journey of building this table!

Tip: Make sure all of your legs are nailed in evenly so your bottom is nice and solid!
Tip: If your staining your project, be mindful of where you place your nail holes!
I used my Ryobi Cordless BRAD NAILER 18GA Model P320 [BASE TOOL ONLY] 18V Battery/Charger Not-Included to nail my pedestal and it is by far one of my favorite Ryobi tools. I use it on almost every project I do.
I actually won this amongst other tools in a contest on Ryobi Nation!
Every month they have chances for 3 winners to win $500 in power tools. All you have to do is upload a project you've built/made. Its just that simple! Here are the tools I received from winning. Awesome Right?

I joined the tabletop together using a Kreg Jig K4 Pocket Hole System on a 3/4" setting, Gorilla Wood Glue, 18 oz. and 1 1/4" pocket screws and then cut it out with my Ryobi P523 Cordless 18V One Plus Lithium-Ion Orbital Jig Saw Battery and Charger Not Included.
This was my finished base for the round table, I was so proud of myself for this one.
After completing my build I used Dap 21506 Plastic Wood Filler, 16-Ounce to fill the nail holes and any other openings I wanted to close up.
For the finish I used:
Annie Sloans Chalk Paint in Old Ochre
Old Masters – Walnut
Old Masters Clear Finish
I painted the base first with the chalk paint and let it dry. I love chalk paint because it dries extremely fast.
Then wiped the walnut gel stain over top of it like I normally apply stain.
and here she is!!
Here is the same build using Minwax Jacobean!
