I made this pine coffee table before I moved into my first workshop about 5 years ago. Took about a day using circular saw, jigsaw and a cheap router.
It has two small doors at the top. One opens a box for my cards and dominos. The other one is a hole. You can see how it’s used in the picture with flowers (vase is on the lower shelf).
The whole thing is held together using 8 bolts and can be disassembled in 3 minutes.

Hey that’s great. It’s exactly the kind of thing I’m looking to make for my living room, though perhaps 2/3 the width of that (small room.)

Thanks for your warm comments everyone!

SawDustKing, this was a stain mixed together with protective varnish. I used a cloth to apply. I would do it differently now but this was done 5 years ago…

RLow, I also had these fears. But in reality I never got hit so far.
