« Part 3: Woodworking has started. Part 4 of My maple coffee table series no next part

Had a free day today in spend in the shop. I finished flattening the top with my new wood river no.5 plane (thanks LJ Forums for the help there). I also finished milling the legs and aprons down to final size. Then I put a edge on the top with the router and did some sanding. Next I plan to make the floating tenons and cut the mortises for the legs and aprons. So far my project is coming along nicely with only some minor hiccups here and there. Thanks for reading, here are some pictures.
