2 coffeetables i made for fun. The oak comes from a big pile of small 35cm boards i still have.
The legs are identical and consist of 3 seperate cirkels, wich i then glued together. The top ones have a quarter notch where the top sinks in.
I did the top like this because my boards weren’t wide enough to overlap :)
but I’m pleased with the result.

Thanks for watching.

I like your end-tables. The design is quite interesting with the top-surface ‘quarter-mounted’ into the tops of the legs.

If I may say so, the only part that troubles my eyes is the combination of the circles with all the square edges. If they were mine, I might consider a small chamfer on some of the leg edges. But like I said first – I really like your tables.

Thomas, you definitely have a distinct design style of your own. I like the way you blended circles and squares and your “outside the box” thinking. Well done, Thomas.
