    Coffee table

    Had some cherry hanging around calling me to do something with it. So I was needing a coffee table. A little eastern maple and a design I saw somewhere in a mag. Here it is.

    Drew! You are a Genius!

    I have my laptop on the coffee table and backup drives on the end table.
    What a great idea to hide some of these dumb cables?

    How did you come up with the idea to raise the table top?

    I love that!

    Thanks Don, glad that you like it. I have a set of end tables to build next to make a matching set. Still working out the designs for those. Want to incorperate drawers into those and still have the top being elevated.

    The raised top really got my attention. At first glancce I thought it raised and lowered, but I couldn't see any mechanism along the apron, so I guessed it was fixed. At any rate, it quite rich, very unique, and I love the look.
