The top is made from 2x8 lumber and they come with a bevel on the edges.  I trimmed about 1/8" off from each side to get a straight edge to glue together, but didn't cut the bevel all of the way off (hope that makes sense).  No router, but on the end pieces, I used the sander to try and match the bevel on the side pieces.

Thanks, I was wondering why there were "cut" pieces that didn't match the materials. Now it makes sense. That won't be a problem. 

I like that the table top pieces do not meet up flush, so there is a defined line between each. Did you "do" anything to make that happen (routing?).

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks George.  It is fairly easy to build.  I think the only tricky part for beginners is that I ripped the face frame boards down from 1x4's or 1x3's on the table saw.

What color stain was used on the top?

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.

Then the real test, hook…
