For some reason, I am unable to get this weeks video to play on Lumberjocks. Please view it on You Tube.


This is a ‘50s style, mid-century modern coffee table. I made it to complement the credenza I made a few weeks ago. It’s made out of cherry and is a pretty easy project.

Please find building plans for this project here.

I think there may be a missing piece in the html code of your post.

The first character of the video id is missing in the iFrame.

Video id is …


In the iframe of your post…


I also think the forum software is modifying the code. The underscore symbol ”_” does not play nice. It is also the cause of all the replies showing in italic.

Nice job Steve. It probably happened long before now, but I see further improvements in your woodworking. I also see a benefit of the added snippits of teaching moments such as the Dado/Rabbet information you included.

I LIKE the sticker on your TV. I am partial to your Duct Tape clamps too. Keep-in it real. Carry on.
