Coffee Table #2

10 Hours

My daughter needs a coffee table for her apartment, so here is the second one I built. All the lumber was for free and mostly from pallet material. Hope you all like it? Sanding this is what took the longest, all pieces for the most part were weather as you could see in the first addition to my photos of the first coffee table.
