I built this table for our living room. My wife saw a similar one in a sales paper and after going to the store and seeing it in person I figured I could make one just as nice, if not as inexpensively.
The entire thing is walnut except the inner drawer parts, those are made from some spalted poplar I had kicking around.
The most difficult part of the entire thing was figuring out how to attach the “X” to the inside corners, I ended up using a loose tenon and slotting the end of the X so that I could slide it down onto the tenons. I worked well, but took some fiddling to get a clean joint.
I closed in the back with random widths of tongue and grooved walnut slats that I slightly beveled to hide any gaps that may open up with seasonal movement.
