This coffee table is built from maple milled out of 8/4 boards. I just did a very basic design using straight, clean lines. The top is made from glued up strips, a chamfered edge routed to soften the upper side and stained using Rust-oleum Ebony with a poly finish. I like pieces done in two-tone stain if contrasting woods are unavailable so I used Watco Danish Oil on the base. The base is put together using pocket-hole joinery thanks to the Kreg jig.

Thanks for checking it out!

That looks like you did a great job! You should include dimensions, finish, wood types, etc in your description as it will help others. Just a suggestion from a fellow “Okie”

Howdy there, gfadvm! I thank you kindly for the compliment, and I took your advice about adding a description to the coffee table. Hope the weather’s treating you well up there in Jenks, and I’m glad to meet my first Lumberjock from our great state!

I checked out your work, and you’ve done some really great-lookin’ stuff. Your boxes are very nice indeed!
