Made this coffeetable out of jointed pine boards. Stained the ‘legs’ with some hard coal wood stain and the top with medium oak stain. The top has som sort of split in it wich I made on purpose and burnt it with a torch. The initial idea was to make it a knock down coffeetable, but the strenght wasn’t satisfying without proper joints, so I’ve used dowels and pocket hole screws to reinforce them.

Great looking coffee table! I like the top, and the rustic look of it!

Very attractive. From what I can see it works well with the rest of the room.
Well done!
