    What did he do to the casters to make them look old??

    Dan's the man. So glad to see he's working for HGTV. This is a nice project, a utilitarian object with a creative spin. NICE :)

    I am a woman builder who has been building furniture out of salved items and salvaged wood for the past 13 years. I love to see shows where they make stuff, enough with the real estate shows.

    Love, love, love this! Many uses for a table is what I love…..can't wait to see the next idea. I love your simplistic approach of ideas and the way you explain how to do it. This is what HGTV began with. I hope they are returning to this concept…it's what us as viewers want to see. You need your own show! Thanks for continuing to inspire us.

    This guy is amazingly talented and not bad to look at either….no arrogance is refreshing! Give him his own show already!xD

    It's a great-looking table. However, you might want to tell people to be sure to mix it as you have with a few light-colored and refined modern items. The setting is so important. It looks great with that white fur rug beneath that provides an intermission between the dark table and dark floor. I'm sure you know what I mean. Some people can get carried away, and a whole room-full of heavy dark furniture like this would be oppressive. Please use your website to teach your viewers a bit by making a point about the fundamentals of good design, simplicity, and restraint.
