So I tried Kentucky Coffee again this time for a costumer (my brother). When he saw my Kentucky Coffee Table he liked it and decided he wanted one for his house. He said I could design it however I wanted but it had to be made from the Kentucky Coffee and it had to be heavy (he has two kids and it will take some abuse).

I returned to the wood dealer where I found the Kentucky Coffee and picked up two more pieces that were about 3” thick and about 15” x 55”
After milling the pieces flat to about 2” I joined them together with dowels and now had a very solid (and heavy) table top.
The legs are 3/4” Poplar joined to make 4” x 4” and fitted to the table with a mortise and tenon. the four poplar caps on the table top give the illusion that the legs are solid 4×4 posts ran completely through the table.

Very Nice!

I like the way the legs come through the top.
