Lookie what I built....

I needed a bartop for my pool room but they cost like $150 and up, so I got some cheap wood from Lowes and around my house and built this for under $50. Used some old suede fabric to line the top of the table (scotchguard). Thought it turned out pretty good!

Very nice looking. It looks top-heavy, did you weight the bottom down at all? Is it tippy?

The center beam down the middle is a thick heavy column of wood (old piece of treated wood I had laying around) so it's surprisingly not top-heavy since it's weighted down the center. I did put some carpet spikes on the bottom for more stability.

I'm not that great at building things (don't have the tools) and usually just go by trial and error, so I was kinda surprised that it turned out better than I thought it would.
