I enjoy multi-tasking while watching old movies so I created my coffee table-workbench.

Wuddoc, Welcome Aboard.
That is a great coffee table!! It looks fanatastic and so functional.
I am sure some of those on here that are working in their apartments will be interested in this concept.

Thanks for the post, and thanks for spending your carreer promiting and teaching woodworking. Look forward to seeing more of your work.

A man after my own heart, I too have the multi-tasking disease and love your your idea. Well executed!!!!!!

This is a really nice build. Very unique. I can honestly say I have never seen, nor dreamed of, a coffee table patterned after a workbench. Only a LumberJock would produce something like this.

Thanks for making my day. :)

You have made a pretty massive coffee table cum work bench using your precious time while watching movie. The design is very good. What are the dimentions of the table?

That’s the coolest idea! Why put a little TV in the shop, when you can put a little shop in front of the BIG TV?!

Ohhhhh wuddoc, you really have the disease bad! You’re gonna fit in fine around here! Welcome aboard and I gotta say that is the best coffee table I think I’ve ever seen. You wouldn’t happen to use a router as a food processor would you??
We gotta see the rest of the house now…

My wife has been after me to build us a new coffee table. I would probably be sleeping in the shop if I waltzed in with this…

Excellent job. Novel idea.

Welcome to LumberJocks. Lots of positivity here.

Very nice…. Used with vacuum cleaner plugged in and ready to go, the minute the wife comes home?

That’s a great idea for a woodie’s household.

Wuddoc I love this!!!! I just showed this to my wife and she said…..........uhhh NO! I think to hide the idea of woodworking in the living room though I might make the Lazyboy have a pop out carving bench, then I am sure she will agree to that!

Curious to the material used on the top?

I thought it looked like a miniature as well! either way, it is impressive.
I’m sure I’d get away with something like that in my house!
