About 15 years ago we picked up two painted Haywood Wakefield end tables. After refinishing them my wife wanted a coffee table to match. In 2002 I found dimentions for height, width and length of a HW coffee table on line. I copied the table curve and and leg shape from the end tables. I made a series of jigs to produce the legs so they would be consistent. That was actually a lot of fun and worked out well. The coffee table is made from soft maple. Mixed stains and poly finish. The stain matches our end tables but is not the “secret blonde Haywood Wakefield formula”. Thanks for looking.

Very nice, I’ve got a set of HW furniture in my basement that was my parents from the 50s. I’ve always like the look of it. Good work on that.

I like it, simple but still the lines in the legs are pleasing
