Fun animal table witch looks a lot more expensive and complicated than it really is.
You don't need very experienced woodworking qualities. If you can handle an electric jig saw you can do this!
Looks great in an ethnic styled room, an Africa theme or  a child's room with jungle theme. 
And I an sure many of you will be inspired to do variations with other animals, although the wide-legged posture of a drinking giraffe is very inspiring.

Step 1: Materials and tools

MDF board 15 mm approx 122x110 cm
MDF board 3 mm 12x36 cm
12 wood screws 35 mm
4 wood screws 25 mm
8 small nails 20 mm

pencil and rule
electric jig saw
(electric) screwdriver
(electric) drill 2 mm (pre-drill screw holes)
speeddrill approx 16 mm
small plane tool
file and/or grater
transparent wood stain (pickle); I used dark oak
masking tape

Making the pattern took forever and the color still run under the tape a bit, but it looks more like fur like that. Thanks for the instruction. <br>I made a Zebra TV table in the same style too.
Fantastic! Love them both! May be the zebra pattern is something for me too..... Thanks for showing the results. I feel s&oacute; proud my idea is gone further than my own room!
nice idea...
I LOVE this!
