I finally have the coffee table done. The top is wenge and the bottom is poplar. Dimentions are 20 1/2 (H) X 25 1/2 X 50” . I used pocket hole joinery as I wanted to try out my new Kregg pocket hole jig. Drawers are 3/4” poplar with 1/4” birch ply bottoms dadoed in. I wanted the drawers to be strong as I keep my laptop in one side. The other side holds all of the remotes and the x-box controller. My wife calls it my man drawer. LOL I added a light stain to the poplar to get the contrast I wanted between the two. Six coats of poly clear to protect it. I do wish I had a joiner. It would have helped with the top. This was my first time working with wenge. I found it easy to work with. Just make sure your tools are sharp. Sorry, not the best pictures. I need to work on taking better pictures to show off my work. Comments good or bad are welcome. I’m just learning after all.
