This is one of our rustic oak coffee tables that we sell in the UK. A simple design but a nice chunky piece of furniture that looks great in the modern country home!

I’m in agreement, doesn’t look like a tornado would blow that old boy away! So is “sturdy” the name of the game in the UK? Must be!

Looks great.

hehe, thanks for the positive comments, i think the pictures make it look quite a bit bigger than it actually is… but hey, chunky is good! Ive just launched my website Rustic Oak Coffee Tables selling this style of furniture in the UK…If anyone has a related furniture site and would like to exchange links just let me know! Thanks again for your comments! Ben.

You could make ten tables with that much wood. LOL, actually, Cool idea for that rough and tumble house full of kids. Would be hard to damage that! Different idea, I like it.

I really like the look of this. How do you attach the ‘feet’? Nice job!

Hmm, I don’t know, it looks a little flimsy… LOL

Looks great, I like the “chunky” style… something I could certainly put my feet on…

I sure hope this doesn’t have to be moved too often! Where did you find the wood for it?

Wow! Is this sold as free products with purchase of shipping?: ) Like Mick, I’m wondering how you attached the legs.

I’m thinking the legs are attached using gravity and a couple of dowels . . . or in this case broom handles. :-)
