Hope you enjoy! This is a coffee table made as a wedding present for my sister.
All the wood except the bottom shelf in the middle is ash with a dark walnut stain. The shelf in the middle is a single piece of pine that i found interesting. It was all actualy old 30” baseboard segments that my dad had that dates from the early 1900’s. I ripped down the edges for the trimming around the sides and the legs are just another kind ripped in half. The tiles are just standard 6×6 tiles in the center and then the edging is trim tile for a shower!
The idea is all mine (kinda proud of that lol) and was all put together in a week! I really wanted to make something special for my sister for the wedding and i thought splitting the levels would make it a conversation piece. I wanted to make it appear to ‘float’ in the middle and with a simple short leg in the center of the shelf it worked fantastically! You can stand across the room and the leg is still invisible.
Thanks for taking a gander and hope to be back again soon!
P.S. I’m still pretty new to all this so i don’t know what style to put it under….help?
