This is a “coffee” table I made for my nephew and his wife as a wedding gift 2 & ½ years ago. The design was taken from some photos of a style my nephew liked. The top is a solid 4/4 stock walnut panel surrounded by a 12/4 stock frame. The frame is mitered and I used a ½ inch “locking” key vertically through the miter and perpendicular to the joint. The grain of the keys also run perpendicular to the miter joint. The top and frame are tongue and grooved together.
The finish is 4 coats of satin wipe-on poly/oil blend which was hand rubbed out with 0000 steel wool and paste wax. If you’d like to see more details of the construction, I posted a blog at: http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/Woodhacker/blog/4623
There’s been talk of matching end tables. We’ll see how that goes.
