My brother and sister-in-law just moved into a new house and are currently doing some remodel work.
while helping them about a month ago she mentioned they would be needing another coffee table.
Well me enjoying woodworking like i do have been itching to build one.(as i walked thru lowes looking at wood a few months back i saw a nice piece of spalted pine and for some reason in my head it sparked the idea of a coffee table (you all probably know the feeling) and since then ive looked at the materials to build one every time ive walked the isles of lowes) but anyways on with my story…. i told her dont worry about buying one until after christmas, well then the work began. i decided to construct it of cedar then burn it at an almost random pattern and finished it with mineral oil. she loves it!! now it is off to my old work (cabinet shop) to get a coat of poly or two.
what ya think?
Hope you enjoy it!
