MidMod tv stand coffee table in European beech. I made an angled skirt to align with the hairpin legs, put in some cutouts in the back so she could wire up the tv and dvd players and things. Did some test stains on scraps before we chose this color. pretty straight forward joinery, dados and rabbets. I don’t work with nice lumber like this so it was a treat not to have to pull a bunch of nails and sand and glue up voids and splits before I start the project! :)
