I have been working on this project for a while now. This is the biggest and hardest project i have ever completed. It is on the cover of Woodsmith Magazine #189. My wife loved and wanted it, so I said I’d make it for her. Here it is. If anyone else has made this, or is making, or is going to make it, please let me know. I’d LOVE to see someone elses take on it.

Fantastic job Pdl!! It looks really nice with the dark stain. I’m sure your wife will love it – and now you can justify some of the $$ spent on tools!
I saw the same coffee table in the magazine and wanted to give it a shot, but it was definitely over my head. I’m impressed with how it turned out. Great job!

Very nice. I am actually putting the finish on the one I am building right now. I am building it for my sister in-law for her wedding present. I will post mine as soon as I put the last coat on tonight. I did mine with 3/4 golden oak and 1/4 pecan stain with lacquer finish. should post later this week. but you did a very good job. My hats off to you cuz i probably had the same problems that you did

You have made a beautiful table. I always wanted one like this, and I have a lot of cool furniture, but I never did get one these. Your wife must be thrilled!

I used Minwax Red Mahogony stain, and regular Semi-Gloss Poly from Minwax as well. I used Minwax pre-stain wood conditioner 1st. There are 4 coats of poly on the top.
