I built this coffee table to better fit my living room. The one I built 2 years ago was too large for the room as we had packed more furniture into it. I’m glad my wife requested this as this cherry table matches all the cherry furniture better than the old oak table.

This was my first time using drawbored mortise and tenons and it worked out great, I’ll be using them for future projects.

This is a nice design and a real beauty.

Nugs, that is very nicely done. You did a great job with some rather difficult design elements.
