Log side table made in my style of scribed joints and made to compliment my log chair
Top and shelf are oak that has been rescued from the woodstove this year.
Left natural edge and has some nice worm holes and spalting.

Coffee table has been started but finding oak top to match will be hard part.

Nice job Doug, I am a sucker for log style furniture. What are you using to cut your mortise and tenon joints?

I have posted a blog series on the way I’ve been doing this style
But basiclly I scribe, grind, test fit, grind, test fit and so on till I like the way its looks.
It really is time consuming but thats who I am.

I have always admired the chunky look and natural feel of log furniture. Nice work. Will check out your blog on your joinery technique. Definitely a much better look than the typical dowelled mortis and tenon.

When I first look at it, I though it was bamboo! That’s a very nice piece! It looks fantastic!

Thanks everyone,
Guess I should’ve mentioned that the logs are yellow birch.
