This red oak mission style coffee table is very sturdy and commands a presence in any room.
I found a plan but modified it to my tastes and construction methods.
The table is straight forward mortise and tenon construction with glued up top and shelf.
I use a wrap around trim board with biscuits for alignment to hold the top in place and add character.
A very simple project to build in addition to being functional it’s a pleasing piece for any room you need a coffee table in. I have also built this same table and finished it natural. That also looks good.
This coffee table is 24 inches wide, 44 inches long and 18 inches tall. You can make it to what ever size fits your needs.
It takes a day to build this – and about 4 days -allowing time for drying between coats for the staining process.
It is finished using my 12 step mission finish process.
