Hey everyone,

I had some leftover pieces from my previous cutting board, and decided to build a coffeetable out of it.
It wasn’t a request but it seemed fun to try.
Wood types are maple, cherry and walnut.
I made pictures this time of the progress;

I used a beech plywood base to glue the blocks on.

I glued them on one by one to be sure everything stayed flat.

same procedure :) but bigger.

planing the uneven parts flush.

1st coat of Danish oil.

3th coat of Danish oil.

Because our bandsaw blade was to dull, i went with the mitersaw.

Routing out notches for the top to sit on.

cleaning up the mortis’s.

marking all pieces and testfitting.

sanding the legs.

Also applying Danish oil.

frame glued up.

The top is attached with corner braces to the frame.

Thanks for watching!

I’m thinking that when people see this you are going to be busy putting more pieces together. :>)

This is so cool. I’ve never seen that treatment given to a coffee table. Great idea and execution.
