A simple coffee table. The top is made out of solid birds eye maple. The bottom tier is made out of solid maple. The shape was a chalenge for me. Having no straight lines was new to me. In the end I cut it with a jig saw just shy of my line and then sanded and sanded and sanded until I got the shape I was after. Finished with gel stain and arm-r-seal. Thanks for looking.

That is not a simple coffee table. That is beyond fantastic!

Brilliant! It looks so awesome.Many people assume that coffee table are just another piece of furniture and ignore it’s importance. But one very important aspect to be considered here is that since these are going to be used in living rooms they become an important visual aspect just like other units like the sofa set, visual display cabinets, TV units and other design accessories.
