I desperately needed a sturdy table for my sewing machine. The plastic folding table just was not getting it done. I built this table and then it sat in my garage for a full two months before I stained it. Why? Because I really really really don't like staining anything. It is much more gray than it shows in the picture, but I just couldn't a good picture for color, because my house is yellow and reflecting onto the table. So far I am liking it, but may end up building some sturdier legs for it. The legs are from Ikea.
