This is a 24inch square coffe table that I made out of some spare lumber that I had after another project. The top was origanaly some shelves that I had in my bedroom and the legs were cut from an old fence post that cleaned up nicly. I used my Kreg pocket hole jig to fix the legs and I used a round over bit in my router to round of the edges on the top. I finished it with a beech water baseed stain.

Thanks for looking

Hey TTK. Neat table. Simplistic and rustic . . . I like it.

Any problems with “wiggley legs” or do the screws hold it strong.

I find the best way is to use some scrap to test on before you work on the peice that is going to be on the finished product.

Zuki to answer your question the screws hold stong

Thats the idea Callum. There is always a use for second hand material.
