Arts and Crafts coffeetable featured in FWW several years ago, made for myself. My first experience with breadboard ends, and they turned out fairly well.

Red oak material. Solid top with breadboard ends. Top morised into ends with ends being screwed to top leaving room for wood expansion and contraction. Screw “holes” plugged with some kind of dark lumber (dont remember what it was). Through-mortise and tenon joints on the bottom rails. Stained with Varathane, Gunstock stain.

Vice attractive design, well done. With those extended breadboard edges I would have to call this table the “shin buster”

That is the one “flaw” of that design, but I really liked how they extended past and gave it a unique look.

I like the extended breadboards. Since they’re never going to be flush anyway, might as well make it a design feature.
