I’m getting into woodworking more, and this was one of my first “big” woodworking project that wasn’t baseboard/casing, etc. I do a lot of remodeling stuff, but not playing around with wood.
I accidentally broke the glass from my wife’s favorite coffee table and knew this is what she wanted if it ever broke. I had some 23/32 osb in the garage and some Poplar 1×2s so I got to work. Ended up making the top design out of Poplar and Red Oak and the outside border out of Aspen as I had it left over. We re-used the metal legs for now, but will change them to wood as well later.
I learned a lot on this project (I.E. to make my own wood filler when the store bought didn’t stain the same), and am super happy with it. We wanted it stout as we have young kids, and it holds my weight no problem. Finished with a Kona stain and a gloss poly. Hope y’all enjoy, and I’ll always take pointers/criticism along the way!
