My rendition of Greg Paolini’s Limbert-style coffee table, as seen in Fine Woodworking.
I used banding on the edge of the top and shelf; trying to give it a little more refinement, and avoid issues with staining end grain. Additionally, I just think it is more attractive than end grain.
Of course, all quarter-sawn white oak. The finish is my special recipe, which you can download here.
It’s a present for my wife’s birthday very soon. She’s always saying “You make stuff for other people and never for me!” Well, cross that off my check list!
It was a surprisingly easy project.
