This is a Mission Style Coffee Table that I made for my home. It was made from plans I got from Rockler. There are 32 hand cut mortises.

Nice craftsmanship. Apparently red oak, but could be ash. I’ve noticed that the number of slats in the end is almost always and odd number. You used three, but I wonder if five wouldn’t look better. Of course, after hand-cutting 32 mortises I’m certain you didnt want to cut 8 more.

The plans called for three slats in each end. If I were to do it again, five might look better. The matching End Table also has three slats. Both are made from Red Oak.

The plans called for longer dimensions on the Coffee Table but I made it shorter to accommodate the small area in my Living room in front of the L-shaped Couches. Because I altered the length, numerous other dimensions were affected. I had to really pay close attention to the overall measurements while building it.
