Coffee table made from reclaimed lumber. The first table I made was quite heavy so I used 1” rough cut maple lumber for this one. I made the glue up oversized , thinking I would cut to the size after assembling it. The one side had a unique live edge, to duplicate the other side I used my draw knife and cut to size, this left a rough edge that I sanded out with 25 grit disc. The legs are from 2 1/2” x 3” oak . To finish the top I use a 25 grit sanding disc on a small grinder, tilt it on one edge and the marks look like they came from a saw mill circular saw.

I’ve always had a soft spot for rustic furniture. Well done.
