I made these two craftsman coffee tables for my wife for Christmas. Design is from Woodsmith magazine #112 (available from Shopnotes online). Initially I was going to make just one in QSWO, then decided I might as well make two since I’d already have the machines set up (measure twice, cut twice!). The second table is walnut. Finished both with Watco danish oil, natural tint. Many thanks to Lumberjocks posters, from whom I learn helpful things every day. Being able to search the site for techniques, projects, blogs, and tips helped a lot with this project. This was my first “furniture” build, did a lot of “firsts”: morties & tenon instead of pocket holes, card scraper instead of sandpaper, etc. Got it done just in time (1:30 am Christmas morning!) Thanks for looking.
