Similar to the Christmas 2011 project I posted, this 2010 Christmas project for the wife is a longer and taller sofa type table. Again here is wood that was given to me (birch top and curly maple legs). I do have a problem though, the free wood is in very short supply! Since I’m a novice woodworker, the tapered legs really strained my ability but as is typical a jig did all the work. This too is pocket hole joinery. The stain I believe is just a clear coat. The black birch top (although not very noticeable in the pic) really pops with visual grain and color change. I want to build more with this wood.

The table works better for us at the landing of the basement stairs instead of behind the sofa.

If this is the result of a novice woodworker, with free lumber and pocket screws, I wanna see what you can do with traditional joinery and matching lumber!! What a great table!!
