First comission. My wife wanted a small coffe table with the same idea of my saw horse, so here are the results. 24”W-45”L-17”H. legs at 5° both ways, 3 1/4” double tenons. I do not have a shop, so I built itim my small apartment with handtools.Tung oil finish.

All comments, especially critiques, are welcomed and appreciated.

That coffee table looks pretty dang good to me! I especially like the contrast that the tenons create as they come through the top. Good job!

Thanks all! PurpLev, when I was laying out the trough-mortises, the upper “squares” were displaced 5mm both directions toward center of the table, so the angle obtained (about 5°) is “smooth”, still gives the table the gravity feeling. inicially I used a smoother plane to prepare all the surfaces; for the final stages a sharp card scraper -legs and underneath areas- and a Large Scraper plane for the top. Is the first time I use an scraper plane and now I can say I have a new favorite tool!

I used Pure Tung Oil for the finish, a second coat and final wax is due.

Beautiful design and craftmanship. I also love the way you photographed this. Don’t you just love the way tung oil brings out the natural beauty in wood.

Nice skills. No Shop? That is just to much bragging for me! :)
