My first piece of furniture. Claro walnut top, black walnut legs and apron. Mortise and tenon joinery. Top is connected using the “Z” type clips. Finish is pure tung oil, waterlox and then wax. Would do a few things different if I could to do it again. Terrible photographer and camera…

Awesome job and wouldn’t have guessed it is someone’s first furniture piece at all. Especially like the way the top is nicely bookmatched. Well done. Cheers, Richard

You should be proud. This coffee table is very well done – especially if this is your first piece of furniture.
