Here is a coffee table that I just completed. It matches the wall unit which I posted a few months ago. It’s made with birch plywood and poplar trim and measures 2 feet X 4 feet. The finish is one coat of GF rosewood stain followed by 4 coats of GF high performance semi gloss topcoat. The molding on the table top is raised a quarter of an inch to accept a piece of glass.

Boy, the stain turned out great! You really got a nice mahogany look out of it. GF rosewood eh? I’ll have to remember that. Nice piece.

Nice work on the table. I like the fluted legs.
