Next started with legs.  Cut pine planks. 8 per table and ripped one side at a 45. Didn't have a bit for router so made a slot with table saw for joint and cut a thin plank to complete joint and glue together

I then stained the tables with oak stain. Was not happy with result and started sanding to re stain.. After starting liked the look and decided to keep it that way.
