Some of you might recognize this table from the woodsmith shop. I started with their plans and adjusted a lot of their dimensions to better fit in my semi cramped living room. The original plan was a lot deeper at 30×38. I scaled it back to 20×36 and am happy with those proportions. This is the last furniture project that I’ll be able to crank out this year as winter and a new baby are quickly approaching. I can’t imagine either of those will help me get more shop time.

Finish is a mix of two transfast/transtint dye stains. 3 parts Dark Vintage Maple to 1 part Dark Mission Brown under water based polyurethane. That color is a new one for me but looks like it’s going to be the norm for any new living room furniture going forward.

Any comments or questions feel free to post below. Thanks for looking.
