This coffee table was actually one of my first projects. I built it when my boys were coming over for the summer. Very simple design. Made of oak and coated in a polisander (dark brown) stain. Two coats of stain then finished with many layers of half tung oil, half linseed oil mix. Has held up very well. Dimensions are 42" by 52" and stands about 19 inches. It was a good project for a beginner.
