... whether or not you question might be about appearing "homemade" instead of hand made.

I remember helping someone who was making a rather elaborate shadow box as a table. Cherry, I think, for the sides, a glass top, felt for the inside bottom where the doodads were going to be. Then, for the legs his plan was to use 2x2s. Straight (well, as straight as they come at the BORG), plain ol' pine, lumber. I asked if he was planning to keep it in the basement, and then we had a discussion about design and tapering the legs and using a complementary species. I never did see how the project turned out.
