I designed this table, actually a pair of them, for a couple who wanted to be able to put them together as a coffee table but separate them for individual use. They’ve got a shelf sized to hold a laptop. The top is made of some really great cherry. The lattice-work shelf is made of cherry and walnut.

Nice job grain matching the top. The design is nice and the table looks solid. Thanks for sharing.

That is very beautiful table. I like the grain pattern of the legs and the approns. Did you cut from a single board of 1/4 sawn timber? The grain of the top is equally beautiful. How thick is the top?

Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for the kind words. It’s hard to see with these pictures, but the top is about an inch thick. I didn’t plan for it to be that thick, but as I was planing it, it just seemed silly to keep eating away more and more wood after it was already flat. The thickness helped when I beveled it on the tablesaw. I cleaned up the bevels with a hand plane.

The wood for the top is not quartersawn, It just happened to be a really beautiful piece of cherry. It was very wide, so I was able to make the top in two pieces.

Brian, thanks for checking out my blog. I’ll be sure to look at your site.

-- Mitch,
