Tigerwood Coffee Table
Finish: Teak Oil
24×48 x 19

I was looking for a quick and easy project and decided on this Tigerwood coffee table.
I ordered the steel legs from Moosehead Metals on Etsy and the Tigerwood is from West Penn Hardwoods.
The top is four pieces of wood joined with Festool Dominos.

Great looking coffee table! I like the contrast of the tigerwood top and the metal legs! Plus that tigerwood is beautiful!

Awesome design, although not completely made of wood. Those metal leggs look fantastic.

Looks great. Getting the base right is one of the hardest parts. You nailed it.
