    Love the result, one question, how did you re-format the underside of the table? They don't cross in the center anymore, so I'm curious to know how you got it stable.

      Lolol! Beware the "tarp" solution! Then you know you've crossed the line from genius to insanity, haha! But hey, at least it will keep you busy forever!

    It is not counter height is it? Could it be made taller somehow and still be stable?Thanks!
