Here’s the final product, and despite all the issues, I’m pretty happy with it. Michelle’s finish looks great and it matches well with other furniture in the house. At 29 inches tall it’s the typical height for a dinner or game table, and the slight table overhang on the side gives us room to flip this thing around and have a nice meal while kicking back on the sofa watching the telly. With carpet friendly furniture sliders underneath, it moves easy as you please.
