This table measures 58×20 wide x 15” tall. The top is 2 pieces of pine from a tree I cut near Gore Pass in Colorado. The legs are 4×4 square and turned on my lathe. I got it down to 10 minutes to turn and sand each leg. The frame is 2×3 joined to the legs with beadlock tenons. Top is secured on the frame using pocket screws. Finish is Watco natural danish oil and satin poly. I just got 30 of my trees back from the sawer, so I plan to make 20 more similar tables. If I can sell 20 of these easy coffee tables, I can buy my own portable sawmill and be the happiest kid there ever was.

Very nice – very simple – this is something we are considering doing with a batch of mulberry flitches we have coming in shortly. I like this design – you may sit it again soon with different materials! We’re looking for some ideas.

Thanks for posting!

love the table. I’m doing one in curly maple with birds eye 4 inch legs. Very simmular to yours. The cost of the material was outrageous but the finnish product should last for ever.I was offered a commission to do the piece but the money didn’t even cover the cost of the material So i’m doing it on spec.
