So this coffee table was our year end project for my 1st year at NSCC.
We started with 8/4 stock, and planed it to 1-3/4” thick for our table tops, then we biscuit jointed them all together and then then sanded or scraped of the excess glue and flattened out the tops.
The skirt is just regular 3/4” clear pine. Legs were made with a shop-made taper jig and our table tops were cut true and square on a table saw panel cutting jig.
Finish is 3 coats (5 on table top) of Minwax “Bombay Mahogany” Satin Finish Stain, i really liked the deep brownish-red, sort of like a red wine colour, so I chose it.
There are some minor defects and flaws, but it was my first real sort of, normal project, and im okay with it. Afterall, I can only get better!
Unfortunately, as I have no need for a coffee table in my house right now, the legs are not fastened to the table. and the table is just tucked away in house, waiting for use, or a buyer.
