Coffee table I made. I fabricated the red cross pieces out of square steel tubing and 1/4” FB for the brackets. All the curves are from a fashion ruler (predetermined curves of the body) material is stained pine. This is one of my first projects.

Great work Austin. I love the shape and think it’s one of the best uses of pine I’ve seen in a long time. I don’t know what 1/4” FB means though if you could clarify. Also, don’t be afraid to post more than on picture even if they don’t all look as good as the first. I appreciate the post.

Great job Austin. Nice use of multiple themes: wood/metal, straight lines/curves and stained pine/ red paint.
Look forward to your future projects.
