This coffee table was my summer project this year. I’m a high school teacher by profession and I’m always looking for relaxing ways to spend my summer holidays. This table fit the bill. The base is made of black walnut and Peruvian walnut and the table surfaces are made with some outstanding quality Oregon big leaf maple. The breadboard ends are pinned in place by square ebony pegs. The most difficult challenge in this piece was the mortise and tenon joinery in the skirt boards and the lower base stretchers. They had to be angled to match the taper of the legs.
