This is my first time building a coffee table. It is made of Walnut, Mahogany, and Purple Heart. I made a one off jig to create the taper legs. That was an adventure. They are tapered to two sides. Finished it off with danish oil and will apply a thin coat of wipe on poly once that cures.
This project was made to match the table I made earlier this year. I really enjoy the thin strip lamination and am using it as a theme for my house.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but working with nice wood (for me anything besides box store pine is nice) is a process. I have such a limited supply and budget, that I often times just end up pacing around my garage trying to decide if what I am doing is going to work or is going to ruin this nice wood and my project. I have a long way to come in my wood working, but it has been a blast.
Hope you enjoy it.
