My wife had been begging me for a Sofa table because she needed someplace to put her wine. Its made from oak as I’m sure you can see. I didn’t feel like getting fancy with the Joinery so I decided to see what kind of results I could get from using pocket hole construction. I used plugs to hide the screws. I think it turned out pretty nice for a weekend of work. I also incorporated a little bit of steel into this piece. It gives a nice contrast and makes it a bit more interesting. I also hinged the top so we could store misc items in there.

I lilke the sofa table. the metal spindles are a nice touch. I agree the do add additional interest. I also like the idea of the hinged top, that’s someting I would have thought of. Is that where the wine rack is going?

Bee-u-tee-ful finish, I love it. I use pocket hole joints all over the place, they work great even without glue.

Yeah I’m right with you on the pocket holes. Don’t have the time for the mortise and tenon stuff. Good work. Thanks for posting.
