So, maybe for my birthday party.
I'm going with Massive Soviet Wood Technology again, just like with the bed. The plan is basically a table-like cabinet thing for the base, about hip-height, made with two 2x12s on each side and across the top, then the top would be done the same way as the headboard of the bed, but with with 2x12s instead of x10s, and with each section taller. Sand the hell out of it all, stain it a nice dark cherry or something, put a really thick coat of polyurethane on the table/cabinet top..
Why exactly do I think this is a good idea?
