I have the Cabinetmakers Notebook by James Krenov and love the work inside. There is a coffee table and some round end tables in the book that I would like to imitate. The problem is the only dimensions are those for the overall size.
My first question comes in there. The coffee table is listed as 60 cm tall which is about 23”. That seems very tall for a coffee table, I’m not sure what to do about it as shortening it could really ruin the graceful lood, any idea’s on that aspect?
Secondly, I’m not sure how thick the top is or any of the other parts for that matter? I assume it is around 1” looking at it but does anyone have an idea if it should be made from 5/4, 4/4 or some other dimension? 4/4 legs seem like they might be a little thin but it is very hard to tell from the photo’s and the limited information in the book.
If anyone has any more info on this or some suggestion I’d really appreciate it.
