Part 1: Coffee Table Part 1

I am making a coffee table and so far I got my pieces for the base if the table. Basic techniques were used to cut these pieces such as the table saw, plainer and the jointer. These pieces will mainly be used for the base. After the base if assembled, the pieces for the dewars will be made. Then the table top will eventually be added on. These pieces include the legs of the table and the frame.

Once I made the pieces for the frame , it was time to start making different cuts. Mortise and tennon cuts should be made for each leg. These holes will allow the frame to fit into the legs. Also the tops of the legs were cut. The thickness that the holes on top of the legs should be the thickness of the ends of the top pieces of the bracket for the table itself. The two cut ends will fit together so the ends of the frame pieces will sit on top of the leg cuts.

Now that my mortise cuts were made, it was time to start making specific cuts in the table saw to fit the frame together. Also I made holes in the aprons of the table to e able to drill the screw directly into the frame connecting them to the aprons. The next step after all the frame work is cut, is to put everything together.

Now that all of these pieces are cut I moved into doing the assemble of the table itself. The first step is to begin to put the bottom rails in the cuts for the legs. Once they are together, I put the top pieces on the legs as well which gives me two total pieces. The left and right side of the table which will be assembled with a wood siding.

As I said previously, all of the pieces are cut. The assembly of the table without the drawers is next. All of the pieces being assembled will need to have their holes predrilled. Once they are drilled, the screws can now be in place. The next step is to make the drawers to accurate sizes and build the frame for them.
