So, truth be told, this table was originally going to be a cribbage board. But after finishing it, I couldn't bring myself to drill holes in it. So this 30-06 peg set will get set aside for a future project. A table sized cribbage board is still on the to-do list.

Happy accident. Had a slight masking tape failure that caused a leak. Luckily it pulled the paint into this nice waterfall effect. Never would have thought to do something like this intentionally. Time to clean up all the edges and pour the top coat.
