Plywood end table

Found plywood  Michelle and I grabbed some scrap wood from work – a lot of good plywood.  They were mostly odd shapes being cut-offs, but there was a decent amount of various lengths.

I’ve seen some plywood edge projects and have liked the look of the plys all lined up, so decided to redo our $15 end table in our livingroom.

The first thing I did was rip the plywood into long strips about 2″ wide.  This would become the final width of the table top and legs.

Cut strips

After gluing the strips together, I planed the surfaces and sanded them.  A lot of sanding.

I may go back and fill in some of the gaps within the plys and add another few coats of poly, but for now, that is enough sanding.
