Over the course of the last week or so I built my own coffee table. A picture of the final result is below. I spent about $80 on it. Which is built better and cheaper than the press board trash furniture that you will find in a box. In total it took about a day to complete. It wasn’t too hard of a build, probably a 4 on a difficulty scale. The plans I used for the DIY Rustic X Coffee table can be found here. The rough dimensions are 52″x27.5″. I finished it off with vinegar and steel wool to stain it and several coats of polyurethane. Next is to build end tables with outlets and usb chargers.

After the great response we had for the last stained glass class, Rachel has decided to do two more classes in December. We’ll be creating a ~5×7 stained glass project. Participants are encouraged to bring their own Glass cutter ($5 – ebay, amazon, Hobby Lobby, etc) everything else will be provided.
We will be doing one 4 Person class as a make up to those who missed the last class on December 8th. The December 16th class will be on projects that can be done this way and it really can open the path to creativity in working with glass Sign ups are first come, first serve. If we exceed the sign ups we’ll plan another day to do this event again.
Please sign up for the classes via the following links (You do not need to have a WordPress account to sign up)
The cost for the class is $20 per person. There is a button to pay for the class on the events page in the links below.

Here are a couple of videos Dru made to show off the progress of his bubble bot.
We had a great time today at our first stained glass class. Here are some of the panels that were completed today.
We hope to have another class if there is interest for those that missed out this weekend. Rachel will come back and host another couple of classes covering the “Copper Foil” method of stained glass crafting hopefully before the end of the year.
