I’ve been checking things off the ‘to-do’ list slowly but surely this summer. The wood for my latest creation comes from a giant stack of mahogany that I acquired a couple of years ago. As with the previous table project, I staggered and glued several panels to make one giant surface. For this surface, I also added support cross pieces underneath for extra support. It’s overkill since I don’t have any 120 lb coffee mugs, but I wanted to use the extra cutoffs in an elegant way. Waste not!

The legs are some 3/8″ steel hairpins that Gina found from a local seller. I purposefully didn’t design any storage in this table to dissuade us from having so much clutter around. Let’s see if it works.

COOL way you cut glued the top together… just like laying a giant hardwood floor! :)

Nice clean joints…

Thank you!

Very nice. I too like the staggered look and your dogs look exceptionally pleased to have this new piece of furniture in their house.
Well done.
