This was my very first wood working project But since I can follow directions pretty good I decided to give the racetrack table a try My two sheets of 3 4 inch plywood cost 23 each I drew the measurements and using a jig saw made pretty decent cuts The cutting took several hours on a saturday Ordered all the materials on this site and finished the job the following weekend Since most folks were complaining about the flimsy legs at Homedepot I decided to build my own as described on this site Everything came out pretty good
