Splayed leg coffee table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Splayed leg coffee table My very first woodworking project was a coffee table. It was made from a pre glued construction lumber panel that I purchased, some big box store select pine, and dowels, with dark stain, poorly applied gloss polyurethane, and a “Roman ogee” profile routed around the edge! Ugly!I had been living with it for around 5 years now, because at least it was solid. But we had a baby this year, and she's mobile now, and those sharp corners that I left on the old table were making me nervous! Plus I had been wanting something nicer anyway.So I decided in a “surfboard” shaped mid-century inspired table, with splayed legs. I found a fellow in Craigslist that had some walnut for sale, and he found me a couple of sequence matched pieces that were exactly the eight width and length to just have one glue joint. So I happily purchased them for $3/bf, and book matched them as best I could working around a knit and some worm eaten sap wood.Legs were turned on my spring pole lathe from pieces that I had split from a log about 4 years ago now. Set into a dovetail batten, which is then set into a dovetail slot in the underside of the table.I'm pretty happy with it overall, and my baby doesn't cry every time she bumps her head on the legs now!
