I made this out of poplar, its a small coffee table used to sit next to my bean bag, it could also be used as a stepping stool i jumped on it a few times to make sure it was strong.
This is a nice simple project you can make in an afternoon.
The legs are cut with a 10 degree bevel on the table saw and i used a kreg pocket hole jig for the joinery, once the wood was cut it only took about 20 minutes to put together.
I cut the curve on the legs with a jigsaw and then used a drum sander on my drill press to smooth it out and add a bevel to it.
For the finish i used 3 coats of danish oil and then decided to add one coat of wipe on poly for a bit of protection. I also waxed and buffed it so its as smooth as glass.
