My wife was getting a little sick of the olive drab harris storage locker that i had been using as a coffee table since my days in the barracks, so i promised her I would make her a new table. This is the first piece of furniture Ive made so i am quite open to some criticism here. I do not have a jointer and all of this lumber was rough cut so i had a bear of a time getting joint that are slightly smaller than the panama canal,,, though that difference is rather marginal. The finish is Cabot Spar Urethane as my dog loves to knock over glass with his tail so i figured i better go with something tough. i had many different ideas for how to do drawers and all kinds of stuff but in the end i got lazy and just decided to do the easiest thing possible. I still need to do two more coats of varnish and finish the inside of the case. Top is made with eastern red cedar, cherry and walnut, legs are cherry and walnut. thanks for looking.
Ps the varnish is still wet, which is why the pictures look all splotchy and why there are no pictures with the top down.
