My dad wanted a footrest for when he sits at the computer and also a place to put books since the computer is next to the bed. The table is Approx 12x8 and 18 inches high. Using simple pockethole screws the table was very fast and easy to make.

Honestly, I don't know much about the wood. My dad asked me to build, I was visiting for a few days. So I ran to the store, keeping in mind my dad asked for a red to brown color. Found a clear board of paduak big enough to not have to glue up the top, not long afterwards the table was born. I also had limited tools to use being at my parents, only an old bandsaw without a fence, a 1/4" trim router with a broken base that I had to use a clamp to firmly secure the router in the base, and a half sheet sander.
