First time posting a project on here. It is a small coffee table that I made for a friends birthday. First time attempting through tenon & mortise with wedges. Not perfect by any means. The accents are recycled pallet wood, red oak; the rest is poplar. It took around 2 days to do. Still lots to learn. Finished with linseed oil followed by paste wax.

I think this is a really interesting table to look at – lots of details. That you did it in two days, wow. My eye likes following all the lines of color and checking out all the through tenons…

Very unique use of contrast in the table top – don`t see that very often but it works!
