My son, Greg, wanted a slab coffee table. I had never made one before, but with his help, we got it done. Unfortunately, he is only available every other Friday, so this took a while.
The table is black walnut measuring 42” at the wide end and narrowing to 22” at the opposite end, 60” long and 18” high. The finish is 2 coats of Waterlox sealer because I had it left from a previous project and 2 coats of the Original Waterlox. Pix 6 is showing the miter between the top and the waterfall foot. That joint was reinforced with “L” shaped floating tenons. The shelf is tenoned to the end and rests in kerfs in the other two legs which are at 45° to the end foot.
Greg thought it would be neat to have the end of the shelf mimic the end of the slab so we did that. I am sorry that the pix are so dark. It was a really different type project for me, but it was great fun working and learning together.
Thanks for looking and any comments.
