This is a coffee table I made while attending The William Ng School of Fine Woodworking . The wood is African mahogany. The finish is a wipe-on poly/oil blend.

That is one nice table! I could have used that today to put my feet up on while watching all the football games! Great job!

That class was well worth the price of admission. I love the pull and drawer details. A true masterpiece!

Looks great. Had a chance to take a Darrell Peart class there. Great schooling. Helped break through a glass ceiling in my workmanship. Hopefully you can say the same thing for you too. That is a great piece. Where are going to put it?

Karson, the top is 36”x48” and it stands 17” tall.

Kevin, the table resides in our living room. Where it is making our cheap Ikea furniture look even cheaper.

Ken, I would really encourage you to take the opportunity and attend one of his classes. I know you would greatly enjoy it as I did. The skills I learned from a master like William are priceless and the project you finish with is just an added bonus.

Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments. It really means so much coming from my woodworking peers.
I have to give William Ng a lot of the credit. First for designing such a beautiful piece and second for teaching me the skills and techniques to get the job done.
Thanks again fellow Lumberjocks!
