Like a lot of the other woodworkers I like to use up my scraps. I had some left over mahogany from a project and my daughter had indicated that she and her husband would like a small triangle table to fit between a chair and sofa. So I set out to make one. In trying to glue up the top, I had problems in pulling the sides together. Cut it apart and started over, then managed to drop one of the pieces and chip the point that was to form the center. This is where the flagstone came in. I had some flagstone from a patio and a little thin piece seemed to present itself as the perfect coaster for a drink or a hot cup of coffee. So the needs met with hiding the problem with the center fit and having a built in coaster. I made a template of the flagstone and used the router to inset it. It sticks up a bit because I didn’t want to cut to deep into my glue and biscuit joints. The bracking for the lower legs was borrowed from a design of some chinese stools that I saw at a flea market. The stain in ebony to match the chair and the other furniture,
