The Morris Chairs were a little bit upset they had to share the room with a 10 year old Ikea glass top coffee table so I built this one to make the room a little more harmonious. It is made from solid quartersawn white oak and built entirely with mortise and tenon joinery. The finish consists of several coats of orange shellac to give the wood the amber tone and then I sprayed on several coats of a satin finish waterbased poly. The only metal fasteners in the table are the z-clips that hold the top to the top aprons. The lower table fits into the lower aprons with through tenons. The top has breadboard ends, which are some kind of masochistic exercise in overkill I seem to keep putting myself through, but I think it’s worth it in the end.
