Hello Lumber jocks fans, sorry I have not posted new projects lately. We have had an extremely busy year so far with just life stuff. I did this coffee table restore project for my friend, well the old table they brought me was just junk! When I went to disassemble the old table it was just epic failure! So a restore job turned out to be a new table build, I did loose my shirt but there good friends and I had all the materials left over from other jobs so my cost was about $3.00 in screws and my time. I took two pieces of cedar and laminated them together to get the with I wanted. This was the first table with a shelf I made in this style and I really like it, so there might be more like this in the near future. I used the liquid epoxy for the finish on the top to give it a hard glass like finish.

Todd, That is absolutely beautiful. I just love that Red Cedar. Great job on the table and I like the shelf idea.
Thanks for showing.

Bob.

That turned out very nice. I need to try that bar top epoxy. Any tips or cautions?

I like everything you’ve done with this table, the red cedar, the thick live edge top and the finish. Sure your friends will love it.
