This is a coffee table I made for my wife; she wanted a place to store her knitting gear. Though the original design was pretty much unanimously disliked on LJ, I made it anyways, with a few changes. Client likes it.100% maple. Water based poly finish.
Wanted to make a table which could be used for guests at Easter and then dismantled and stored until the next time.The top attaches permanently to the long stretchers, which bolts into the pairs of brackets. 2 bolts / bracket, so so it is very solid. Short stretchers are M&T into the legs. Construction lumber / birch plywood. Unfinished but will throw a coat of poly on there to protect it in storage.Lots of easier ways to do this for sure …. but it was a fun weekend project and just takes 1 sheet of plywood and a few 2×4s.Inspired originally by a new Mattius Wandel post, but ended up changing it quite a bit.
