Sofa Coffee/Snack Table

The purpose of this coffee/snack table is for eating while sitting on a sofa watching TV.
Made mostly from left over wood I had in the shop except from the melamine top witch I bought on request of the customer.
The legs are some old mahogany legs I salvage some time ago and remove the paint down to bare wood. I discover some cracks and defects which I fixed, but this meant that I could not show the wood grain, so I gave them an undercoat and then 2 coats of spray paint and a lacquer on top. I also made a groove on them to accept the 9mm Baltic Birch plywood of the sides and a mortise for the tenon stretchers whish are of Swedish Pine

Overall Dimensions: 120X60X57cm
