I decided on December 30th to build my wife a coffee table. 17 days (and numerous 12 hour ones at that), later this is how it turned out. I am pleased with every fit and finish. and the top works flawlessly. She just loves it. Made from Aromatic Red Cedar and Hard Rock Spalted Maple. Approximate size is 48 X 32. Hinge Mechanism is my own design although Several Ideas were had here on Lumberjocks. The top lifts with just 1 finger even with a center piece on top. and the tension springs prevent the top from slamming down. The turn buckles are for fine tuning of the tension. It works well.
