This is a coffee/side table I recently completed. It’s actually the first piece of ?finer? furniture I’ve made. It turned out pretty good, but there is plenty of room for improvement. At the same time I built a printer stand that’s the same thing only narrower. The proportions aren’t as good as the coffee table but it is functional and looks OK. Sorry for the grainy pictures.

The coffe table is 48” long by 13” across and 14.5” inches tall. Just the size for my Lazy Boy.

My first project are the frame and 2 drawers supporting the granite countertop right above the printer stand. It’s made of walnut with maple drawers and is a great computer workstation. The plans were drawn up in sketch-up.

Very, very nice! I especially like the realism of the printer reproduction.
Just kidding, great job. I like the wood contrasts.

Looks really nice, especially for your first project! What did you finish the coffee table with?

I used a natural oil based stain and a 50/50 wiping varnish, 5 coats and messed it up a bit. It tacked up before I got it wiped off, so I just left it. I read somewhere that you can’t mess up a wiping varnish, but I managed to. Another lesson learned.
