This arts and crafts style coffee table is based off of plans from Fine Woodworking magazine. I used white oak for the aprons and the top – the legs are solid walnut, and the bottom stretchers and gridwork are walnut as well.

The top features proper pegged breadboard ends to allow for wood movement, and is attached with oak blocks that fit into grooves cut into the apron. I finished everything using General Finishes Arm-R-Seal. Thanks for looking!

Very nice looking coffee table. Were the Fine Woodworking plans from Kevin Rodel’s article?

Very nice looking coffee table! I like that white oak/walnut combo—they really go well together!
