This is one of those “quick ‘n dirty”- projects, but it turned out pretty nice so I thought I’d post it here.

A few birch dowels and a couple of screws to secure the top, and hey presto, you got yourself a coffee table.

It’s made from birch and measures about 860mm wide, 550mm deep and 440mm tall.
Used lacquer to finish it.

Nothing fancy but I quite like it.

Very nice. Great job at flattening the glueup, was that just a belt sander?

Actually when I made this I had access to a wide enough thickness planer and even a thickness sander, so getting the peaces flat wasn’t much of a problem ;)

Nice job on the table. Very pretty grain in the wood, too.
Thanks for sharing!
