This was a simple coffee table with drawer made with about $20 in materials and spanning three afternoons. My daughter wanted something that she could move easily from apartments and maybe even leave behind when she finishes her post docterate in boston. She is a research fellow at Beth Israel Hospital
This afternoon, I cut out the legs, planed and rough sanded everything, Routed ogees on edges, assembled the legs to the table and installed the drawer with the drawer slides.
My daughter is coming home for a few days at Christmas so I’ll let her do some sanding with the ROS and then I’ll spray a couple of coats of poly on it. I guess that will constitute afternoon number 3.
Maybe I’ll post it as a project when it’s poly’d. I dunno. A short project that’s for sure.
Cut out legs
Install legs (pocket hole screws/glue)
Install drawer slides. I cut them down with my grinder as they were too long.
I decided to make some small feet to be a bit more decorative.
