Here is a coffee table that I made. I had a piece of red oak veneered plywood, and some scrap pieces of oak, so I made this table from scrap. Here it sits in action.

Thanks guy!! You know I don’t really care for oak too much, but I think this table came out ok. This was the first project to use my new beading bit on the bottom of the aprons. Once again, another piece of usable furniture, made from a few scraps. What can I say, I’m a miser!!!

Hello Miser , join the crowd !!! lol Beautiful table design and Oak isn’t one of my favorites either , but the design makes up for it no matter which wood you chose
