Well after many months learning loads of information from all excellent projects here I finally set out building my first real project. I decided to practice with a coffee table for my twin brother. I followed some plans off of Ana White’s blog for her 6 drawer library coffee table. The construction is almost all pocket holes which made it fairly straight forward for my first project. I had a ton of fun building the table and finishing it. I was very pleased with how it turned out and will have a tough time letting the table go :) I’m already looking forward to my next project.

Wood turns into an overwhelming addiction. Great looking piece.

Ana is very cool

Excellent first build. I wouldn’t have believed it if you hadn’t told me. What’s your next project?

Thanks for the encouraging words. It does seem like an addictive hobby..
And an expensive hobby. My wife and I are expecting our first child in June so I’m thinking I would like to try to build something for the babies room :-)

That’s cool. I like how the dark hardware and label frames give it an old fashion look.
I usually want my projects to look like they are from the ‘90’s.

The 1890’s.

Many years ago, I built a very similar piece for my daughter and her husband. It only had two drawers, but it was a fun build and they take pride in it to this day. I really like your design. Not only is it a great coffee table, but you can store all kinds of stuff in the drawers. For a first build, this is a winner. Can’t wait to see what you do when you get serious! :-)

-- Cats, beer and wood...perfect.

Really appreciate all the feedback guys. I got the table delivered to my brother over the weekend. Him and his wife said they love it so I guess that’s what really matters.
