I made this, this winter in a total of about 12 hours. I needed a coffee table, had no money and my dad had some extra T & G material left over from when he built our house last last spring. I didn't have a table saw and had to rip everything with a circular saw including the mitered legs. I did have a miter saw so I could trim it out. I took pictures before the lacquer and glass top. Not the prettiest but serves it's purpose like a champ. cheers!
