This was a very simple mid-century modern coffee table, which presented its own share of challenges. The customer wanted two natural edges (walnut) but wanted it to stay within 14-16” wide. This took some extensive wood sourcing… Then they didn’t want an apron (in keeping with mid-century style), but wanted splayed legs in two directions. I found a good hardward to splay the legs, but the angle wasn’t sufficient, so I added angled blocks to achieve the leg angles. I attempted to convince the customer to have thru-tenons that were wedged into the tops, to no avail. I wouldn’t recommend this piece as a bench. But it is tight and firm as a coffee table.
The result is simple and clean. Critique is welcome.
