This is the project posting after my progress blog series for it:
This is a coffee table that I made for my living room. It is red oak and padauk. It is 22”x33”x17”.
I used mortice and tenon joints for the aprons but then used pocket hole screws in addition to that (it was my first attempt at M&T joints, and not all of them were that tight). The table top is biscuit joined together, and attached to the legs and apron with table top fasteners.
It’s finished with several coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal gloss.
I also show my home-made risers for finishing, just for fun.
Also, the painted plane on top was not done by me, I bought it that way (I live in MN, where the state bird is the Loon, and we have many lakes, so when the significant other was pestering about needing “something artsy” I saw it and thought why not, I like it.)
