I made a coffee table for our living room.

It’s made from quarter sawn white oak. A mix of 8/4, 6/4, and 4/4. First big project using the new table saw and jointer/planer, as well as various Festools. All of the joints were made with dominos. It made for an interesting glue up.

I think it came out well, and importantly my wife is very happy with it!

Great table Bob,
Nice way to break in all the new tools you’ve gotten.

Very clean lines. I am a traditional joint guy, but I am seriously thinking about the domino as a floating tenon is likely just as good as a traditional M/T joint. I have not considered it to this point as i don’t do production work, so why rush? That said, I have a number of jobs ahead and I think it is time to speed up a bit.

Very attractive. Crisp and clean.
Well done.
