Thread: My first project - Coffee table

  1. #1

    My first project - Coffee table

    Here is my first woodworking project, a coffee table, I really enjoyed doing this. It's funny how much you learn doing such a simple project. We had one of those Ikea tables before, and I thought, 'I can make something better', and I did. The wife loves it and several family members made comments about how they now want one. I made it out of poplar and stained it with English Chestnut.

    Really nice work. Especially for a maiden voyage!
    Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.
