Since we are changing the rooms around some , the eating area needed a new table. Don built me the base, 36 " x 52" I used stained glass I cut, nipped and tumbled (by shaking the glass in a plastic container with soap, water, and glass marbles.. shake shake shake, and all the sharp shards are gone..and ready to glue on the table. i then put Kilz on the wood, drew me a pattern, then started adding glass, finished it with grout and sealer. Don put the legs on and I added a fresh coat of paint..and we are enjoying meals off it. Total time spent 86 hours !
