    Make one out of plywood and milk crates. Maybe a few cinder blocks?

    One of my friends had a very nice one - octagon shaped - it was a lot of fun viewing all the stuff inside - she's a witch and she had some pretty cool stuff in there.

    It would probably take over 600 dollars worth of tools to make one properly. Doesn't seem worth while.

    If you believe I am pretty and a lady, then of course you will believe that I will buy you a table. PM me your delivery address.

    I think it would be a nice project to take on. But I wouldn't use mango wood- I'd prefer a nice black walnut or even oak would do, for that mission-y look. Or you could go crazy with curly maple. Even at that, it would be cheaper than $600.

    Only if you bought Dremmel stuff which is overpriced by 5-12 times.

    I'd bet you could do it with a router and table (and a dovetail jig if you want to do the drawers right), a table saw, a finishing sander, and a couple of other hand tools- all under $600 (unless you go top of the line), and then look on the bright side- you'd have the tools for the next project!

    Well you still gotta factor in cost of tools since most people won't have the necessary tools to pull everything off.

    Right- although think of the fun doing this with nothing but a jack plane, a spokeshave, a set of chisels, a backsaw, and a brace and bit

    700$ for a POS crate and barrel product, that's FUGLY to boot.

    dude, spend 100$ on some books about design, or a a couple hundred bucks on a professional shopper to help cultivate your taste.

    just sayin'

    Meh. OK, some sandpaper and a block made from 2x4 scrap. That should work.

    White oak is the only way to go with that style. You would have to fume it with ammonia to get that authentic arts and crafts look. The finish on that mango is kind of splotchy like pine gets.

    A table like that would be a good first major woodworking project. It is remarkably simple.

    I don't think it's an ugly table. It even sounds well constructed. I'm not certain why they went with the wood/stain combo they did, but meh... that's their call to make.
    I do think it's seriously overpriced, though.


    One of the coolest tables I've seen was a project that a couple friends made. They used an old door as the tabletop, made tile mosaics in each of the door inset panels, and had a custom glass plate cut and beveled for the top. There wasn't anything fancy about the supporting structure, just that the top was really awesome.

    yeah- on second look at the pic, I agree- I was thinking of it as more of a mission-style (you know, I saw what I wanted to see ). I've never worked with mango, have you? Can you condition it so it takes stain more evenly?
