This project started out as a simple coffee table to get rid of some wood I had in the shop before I brought in more. I had it all planned out on my head,, how many times have we said that? well I got to making it, all was going good, I attached the top to the legs,, and went to move on to the trim,, uh oh,, I screwed the top of the table through the top so now the screws are exposed, it was supposed to attached through the bottom and you never would have seen the screws on the top, it would have been clear..
I started panicking and thinking i would have to build it all over again,, I went to the house after that,,, I always find taht walking away sometimes makes it easier to think, I figured I could add some trim to cover that mistake up and that snowballed into more trim than I was expecting to do, but it all kinda flows now I think. I was intending to plug teh screw holes on the legs and such, but I went with trim over them, it is something I just thought of today upon finishing it, so I think it worked out. the squares are also covering screw holes..
originally there wasnt going to be a bottom shelf but after my mistake I am going to turn this into a side table for the office desk I need to build,, and it will hold the PC tower, router, printer, camera dock,, and underneath files and extra paper,, so It wasnt a total waste..
the dimensions of this are 36” long x 17 1/2” wide x 17” high.. it was made with oak , maple and cherry wood ,, hope you enjoy, I did,, I learn something new everyday,, have a great day, pat
