Default Finished Coffee Table

Okay, I finished the coffee table for my son that I've been working on for the past month or so. The table is 36" x 50" which presented me with a few challenges just due to the large size. I ended up pocket holing the top to the sides and I then just screwed the bottom to the sides. My next project is to build an end table of the same design. The table is solid walnut. I don't have a picture of the drawers but they are maple with walnut fronts.

The bottom picture is before rounding over the edges and applying the finish (it also gives you some insight as to how nice and orderly my garage/shop is ). At this stage in the picture, the base is not yet attached to the table. I used a slot cutter to cut mounting slots in the base frame for attaching the base to the table using clips. It would have been easier if I had cut the slots prior to assembling the base but unfortunately I don't always think that far in advance. The base is made of gluing 3/4" thick pieces together to form 1-1/2" beams. The legs are formed by gluing 3/4" pieces together to form 2-1/4" legs which I then tapered.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Very nice, Chuck. Love the woodgrain. And your shop is how all shops should be - functional and not just for show.

I really like that table, and the tapered short legs really set it off nicely.

Very nicely done. Can’t beat walnut for furniture.
