This is a coffee table for our living room.
I got my wood from an online lumber yard. It was really cool having it delivered to my door.
I choose Purpleheart, hickory and walnut. It’s a pretty simple design. I just cut the pieces and clued them together. Then I added a board of red oak on the bottom for added strength. It probably didn’t need it but it made me feel better in case someone falls on the table someday.
I’m still a beginner so I’m trying to do one new technique with each new piece. For this one, it was gluing. I bought new clamps and pipes and had a great time gluing something so big and heavy.
