End Table – Almost Ready for the Finish

Here is the coffee table almost ready for finish.  A little more sanding and cleaning and it will be ready for staining

Assembled and Ready For Finish
Assembled and Ready For Finish

I found out from my mother that my father built this table when they lived in their first apartment.  I was less than one year old at the time.  That makes this table close to 55 years old.  She went on to tell me that he built the table because they were poor and they could not afford new furniture.  There is also a bookcase than my father made at the same time.  My older brother may have the bookcase.
