    Coffee table- almost done

    Mission style from a free plan I got on the net, used flat sawn red oak. Hardest part was learning to use the Leigh jig to make blind dovetails. I ruined one drawer and the second was way off in color and grain, so I band sawed some 1" oak in half and made book matched drawer fronts. I should have the lacquer on by tonight.Click image for larger version.

    Bryan, that is a classic!

    I often do not find the "Mission" style to my liking, I don't "Dislike" it, but if often leaves me a little cold. NOT the case with this coffee table, that is really nice, I'd love to copy it!

    Cheers!

    That's real nice. I like the bookmatching and enjoy the Mission style.

    Bryan,

    I love the look of Mission furnature. Great job on the table!.

    Are those bicycle inner tubes that you are using to clamp the sections of the legs together?

    Good job on the drawer fronts. The figure seems to flow across the divider and hold them together. Well done...like it a lot.

    Nice job on the table. I really like that method of getting bulkier legs from thinner stock.
