I made this coffee table for our beach house. The top came from an homemade headboard that a friend was getting rid of after a divorce. I sanded it down to bare wood and placed about 7 coats of finish. The legs come from Mathatten Beach in Oregon. There is alway plenty of drift wood to chose from, and I got real lucky when I found two pieces that fit together perfectly to for the base. I had a piece of tempered glass cut to fit the shape.

When I saw the table I knew it was from OR. I used to make and sell burl tables in Lincoln City. Very nice!

A beautiful coffee table. You did a great job reclaiming a former headboard. I didn’t see any glass though???
