I built this because I needed a coffee table.
I was inspired by Jeff Tobert's design when I started. However I am not too great at joinery, so I tried to keep it simple.
After I had just attached the top to the frame, I was on LumberJocks as usual and saw this from Jacquelyn Smith. Having made it out of straight oak I was inspired. Being a big fan of the contrast of walnut against a lighter color, I promptly detached the top and cut it up to incorporate the walnut. I solicited the help of my favorite art teacher to help me come up with the patterns (I never would have came up with something like this on my own), and after much MORE gluing and sanding, finally put it back together, walnut infused.
Thanks for looking
