You won't need much in the way of tools for this project. There's a video you can watch and ill talk you through my construction processes and finish as best I can. Ask questions here or my facebook or youtube. You can adapt this basic structure to suit your size timber available.
Cut the wood for the top, arrange and use a router or biscuit jointer to help the top clamp together. Cut four legs and again with the router make two slots on each leg.
Make struts that fit inside your slots, smooth down the ends with a belt sander to get a good snug fit. Use plenty of glue and peg them in place using 9mm dwelling or whatever you have to hand. I bought a Kreg pocket screw kit which is a great piece of kit. I used that to make the hidden screw holes to attach the top to the base. I used glue, maybe I shouldn't have and just left the first floating which would allow for seasonal expansion and contraction.
I burnt the Lichtenberg Figure with my transformer rig, info is available on youtube in the process. I cleaned the etching out with a toothbrush and water and then backfilled with a glow in the dark powder mixed with a wood filling resin. This was sanded back when dried, it will charge up during the day with UV sunlight and then glow when its dark, fantastic stuff! I finish with a hard wax oil; this helps protect the table from hot pans, coffee cup rings, etc. I used a matt finish and ill be going back over with the satin when it gets here.
