I finished this coffee table recently. It was built primarily with hand tools (I did resort to power sanding, as I only have a jointer and block plane right now).
I wanted to try contrasting woods, so I used Walnut and Maple. I like the overall feel of the table, but I would probably work in more walnut if I could do it again. I also considered using a larger number of narrower boards for the top, alternating as I went. I’m still not sure which one would look better, but I do know which one requires less work to glue up.
I never drew up plans for this. I just decided what looked good as I built. Is there some type of style this fits into? I’d like to look build some friends for the table, and would like to do some research.
