I made this table for a co-worker of mine back in the ‘70’s. She told me she wanted a Norwegian style coffee table and I had no idea what that meant.
She explained that the only real difference is the height as it is meant to serve refreshments. She wanted it to look somewhat rustic, a very light color wood, and easy to move. I suggested pine and gave a sketch (no CAD available as yet).
As she requested I built it to be knocked down which turned out to be a good idea because when she retired she move back to Norway and took the table with her.
The stretcher is held in place with wedges and the legs are attached to cleats that are screwed to the table bottom. The table “knocks down” to four pieces; the top, two identical legs, and the stretcher.
The pictures are both BD (before digital)!
