I made these two tables to stand at each end of a corner sofa in our family cabin.
My own design but with elements taken from an existing shop bought coffee table – the beveled legs, the edge profile on the top.
All mortise and tenon construction, the top ones haunched. I used a hand held router and jig for the mortises and cut the tenons on my router table. The curved stretchers were cut on a bandsaw and sanded to final shape using a bobbin sander. The shelf is loose in a groove in the bottom stretchers.
Finished with 5 coats of home-brewed wipe on poly consisting of 1/3 real tung oil, 1/3 poly, 1/3 mineral spirits – a first for me !
