So I think I have settles on my first project… well more my wife settled on it for me. I am going to build a sofa table. I am still thinking of designs in my head and types of joints I am going to use. I think this “should” be a easier build and should not take too long. I am thinking of using finger joints to hold the top to the 2 legs then using a mortise and tennon joint as a bracer that will also be used as a shelf if we ever move it out from behind the sofa and use it in a hallway. The type of wood I am using is Poplar my wife liked the knots and “rustic” look of one of the pieces. So I picked that up along with another peace that is FAS.
I have sketchup on my computer but does anyone else use a different program?
