Make this coffee table for my daughter. My first attempt had straight legs and got broken within about two months when my son-in-law sat on it. I remade the legs a bit more subtantial this time—you can jump on this one.

Looks great. What finish did you use?

I would be very upset if someone sat on a table I made. I’m glad you could save the top it’s beautiful.

To answer Paden – the finish is spar varnish—this was built for a twenty something!!

Legs look like a challenge. Nice job.

Nice re-leg job. Lovely piece.

Nice table. I like the inlay on the top and the shape of the rails. My nephew just moved into his first home and is looking for a coffee table. This looks like a good one to build for him.
