Finished this one back in December last year and forgot to post it. Coffee table I made by re-sawing and book-matching a very nice piece of quartersawn bubinga that has a hint of sapwood on the edges. Continuous waterfall style leg and a metal leg I welded up on the opposite end. Love this one.

Finished with sealcoat Shellac and then satin General Finishes HP Polycrylic.

Very nice! I love the intense grain and the simple modern design allows the wood to show itself off!

I admire this mittered corner joint of that table.

Exceptional build, Russell. I have always loved this style and you did an outstanding job. How did you reinforce the miter? Also, how did you cut the miter to get it to fit so well? Table saw, sled?

Yeah, domino’s in the miter joint along with a narrow piece of angle iron underneath the joint. Just in case somebody wants to stand on it for some odd reason

You picked some really nice wood – and the grain matching is outstanding. Nice work!
