This sofa table was for my sister. The legs are pine but the top, stretchers and drawers are oak. Trying to find a picture or two of the latest table. Made it out of black walnut. Will keep digging.

Found the pictures of the black walnut sofa table. Its a little bit larger, 24” x 42” simply because I wanted to show the size of the top itself. Its a solid 24” wide and I cut it at 42” long… this board was HUGE. I had no way of planing the board so after $40 dollars of sandpaper and hand scraping, we managed to make it smooth on the top! I only finished sanded the top side… the under side of the top is still rough sawn and shows the saw marks etc. Loved doing it this way. I just hope over the years it doesnt warp too bad. It had been in a barn for over 25 years when I found it!!! So it was well dried and stable. The legs were also made from the same piece of board. It was at least 1 3/4” thick by about 25” wide and over 12’ long! HEAVY. LOL

Nice looking job. I like the medallions on the legs.

Excellent table.The sofa tables are great in every home and they can easily adapt to all interior decor styles that are available today. For example if your home is in a classic, traditional style, you can easily use a table made of wood with extra customization that will give it a more modern look. You can even have tables with glass tops that give your furniture piece a rather stylish and contemporary feel without detracting from the classic aspect of it all.
