This past month I had the privileged of making a coffee table for an amazing family that Haley and I are blessed to have in our lives.
It was large coffee table, 52" 32" 17". I tried our local lumber yard but couldn't find large enough pieces of Walnut. Since I didn't want to piece the top together I ended up ordering a slab (and maybe a couple extra?... for a rainy day), this way I could get a nice book match for the top. As far as design goes everything, was pretty straight forward, no curves, mortise and tenon joinery, a single hand cut dovetailed drawer, shop made brass hold downs and an oil finish.
