made this coffee table because the first one broke not strong enough.
This one is made with 1 1/2 white ash top,the legs are 1 3/4 jotoba and the supports
are 3/4 jatoba,thinking about just putting a wax for the finish not sure yet.
The top was cut to allow the legs to show at the top,screws from each side with plugs and also screws for each of the supports with mushroom plugs.
Hope you enjoy.

The legs were given to me by a friend, unfortunatly I do not own a lathe, I would have enjoyed making them.
