This coffee table is made out of simple oak wood. I decided to make it have a dual purpose of serving as a bench.

That’s a real clever looking project and it came out might nice.However, I don’t think it’s oak; the grain looks like pine. I’ve never seen oak look like that.

Really clever design! I agree that it looks like pine rather than oak I’m familiar with.

Thanks for the comments. And actually i think you are right, i think i was wrong when i put that it was oak. The mechanism itself is a little hard to see. But it is a dowel rod that has a square plug on the end that is spring loaded and travels down a channel. Once the dowel rod is extended and held by the spring you turn the rod which locks it in the outwards position to allow you to flip the table. Once the bench side is up, you simply twist the dowel rods again and the spring pulls it back into the channel, which locks it back into place.
