Needed a few tables for the basement, and I didn’t want the particle board stuff at retail stores. I had some plain sawn red oak laying in the shop, so I made the best of it as a first attempt. I should have spent more time in the finishing stages, but with a deployment on the horizon and an anxious wife, I had to get them done fast. I’m happy with them and they were a fun project, best of all they are sturdy and draw attention from company. Yes, I know what you all are thinking “there’s no such thing as a mission style coffee table”, I know-especially with a glass top! Now that the basement is furnished, it’s on to the main floor. I’ve been spending the last few months contemplating a more advanced style of furniture using higher quality woods. You guys have inspired me mightily and I think that the time is quickly approaching for me to get back in the shop.
