    DIY: How to make a custom size table

    We live in a condo so space is tight.  There is a space where we want to put a table.  As we look and look, we just couldn't find a good fit for it.  Then, Dave came up with this idea, why don't we just custom make one!

    Step by step instruction on how to make a custom size table.

    4 Banister posts
    1" x 3" pine board (bought two 8 feet ones, used about 12 feets)
    1/4" inch think partical board
    Wood Finish Stain

    Budget: About $50
    Time: About 3 hours (not including waiting time)

    Now this table fits perfectly!
