I made these tables from plans from American Furniture Design and really enjoyed building them. I did’t deviate from the plans other than using plywood for the tops with hardwood edging. I think I’ll eventually replace top on the large coffee table with a hardwood top but I was happy with them in any event.

Tables are made from red oak with a fish glue size, aniline dye, breakaway glaze, lacquer finish.

Thanks for looking.

I like the through tenon on the end frames. That wouldn’t happen to be a ridgid t3650 saw your using?
Nice work.

Thanks everyone…and yes, that is a Ridgid TS….oh, and, those aren’t through tenons…they’re faux through tenons…but I think they look pretty good….
