This coffee table is made out of 3/4” knotty pine. I boxed legs by matching the grain, cutting the edges to 45 degrease and putting them together to make them look like solid 4”x4” pine, a cheap and effective way to achieving the look that you want. After the assembly was complete I finished it off with a coat of stain and then three coats of polyurethane.

Chris, Nice job on your table. I like the way you did the legs ( your mitered edges turned out great), but I really like the top of your table. Great job of laying up the stock with the grain.( Looks like a single piece.) Well done.
