This is the walnut coffee table I blogged a little bit about building here:
It is constructed primarily of air-dried black walnut, with some SYP secondary wood inside and drawers of half-inch Baltic Birch. Finish is Black Walnut Watco Danish oil, with four coats of Sherwin-Williams Wood Classics® Waterborne Polyurethane Varnish sprayed with an HLVP system.
The panels on the side (and also on the back) are solid, single pieces of the walnut, about 5/8 thick. I wanted to do raised panels but my wife prefers the simpler look of the flat panels. A lot of the walnut I purchased (for $2 per board foot) is ten to twelve inches wide so I was able to get some pieces big enough I didn’t have to glue up for the floating panels.
The four drawers use full extension drawer slides from Rockler.
Rather than cover construction details here, I will let those interested refer to the blog series. Thanks for looking.
