This is the larger precursor to my matching end table. The coffee table used pocket holes instead of mortises to speed assembly but was otherwise built nearly identical. Each end panel has been scrollsawn and the top is 3/4” plywood covered with 12” slate floor tiles. I painted some wood buttons black and used them to dress up the edges and hide the screw holes.
The project is built from oak and finished with semi-gloss lacquer over General’s Candlelight stain.

Not to be over critical but it would look much better in my Living room. LOL! Wonderful job!

Really nice. Is that scene on the side scrolled, or burnt in? A very nice touch
