My son wanted a mid-century modern coffee table for a wedding present. So after learning what that meant I modified some designs to come up with this. Walnut with miter joints and look- mitered drawers.

You really hit the mark on the mid century design on your coffee table. Great job on the corner miters and other joints.

Great looking work. I’m not usually drawn to MM style but this one has a nice functional simplicity to it that I like.

I like the leg solution. Is your planner that wide or did you have to hand flatten all those glueups?

Very attractive piece. Thank you for showing the leg set up separately. That is very beneficial to see.
