In the last few weeks I've been busy building myself a table. I wanted something, portable, sturdy, good-looking and still relatively inexpensive. After many trips to the Bauhaus (Swiss equivalent of a Home Depot) it's finally done. The tabletop is covered, the legs are cut and screwed together, the wood is stained and I've lost my only excuse to stay at home instead of going out and actually busking.

This table was my first attempt at carpentry, however I must say I'm actually incredibly happy with it. All of it was built by me, with the amazingly generous help of my father.

The table-top is 80cm by 40cm and the height of the table is about 93cm.

You did an excellent job.
It's very satisfying to build these types of things yourself.
And you're right, you have no excuse for staying home now.
Go get'em.
So sorry I soiled your precious eyes.

I would think you'd need stops around the edges because the table is rarely totally flat - especially outside - and any balls, wands, etc. can easily roll off. You can some hardwood picture frame, miter them, and tack it onto the sides for finished edges..........

Your table looks pretty good man. I built mine as a 2'x2' top with an edge. I have not covered it yet. However I think I will pad it and cover it with pleather or something. What did you use to cover the top?

Good idea, I had actually planned to put up some edges, but never got around to doing it.

I'm actually not sure, I went to a material store and just looked around until I found something. It looks and feels similar to velvet.

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments.
