Made this coffeetable out of pinewood boards. Jointed them and made a mitered frame with biscuits to reinforce them. Simple drawer and one open shelf for magazines etc. The stain i used is called a mahogany stain wich is not what it looks like but it has a dark tone wich I was looking for. The handle is stained with the same stain but i’ve added a little drop op black waterbased paint to contrast it. The frame is made out of steel square tubing, welded with a cheap mig-inverter.

Thanks! The welding is not that hard, the outside welds are grinded flat to give it a smooth look.
