  • My Latest Project - Coffee Table

    My boys just moved into an apartment and they took my wife's hope chest to use as a coffee table/footrest. After a week it looked pretty bad. I built them this coffee table so I can bring the hope chest back and refinish it.

    It's made with red oak that I put a light coat of cherry stain on. It has enough poly on it to withstand any amount of beverage and foot traffic they can throw at it. The table is 17" high x 33.5" wide x 21.5" deep and has some storage inside. I never found apartments to be particularly secure so I added a couple of hidden drawers that can hold things out of sight.

    That's a nice looking table. The storage is really useful, especially for an apartment.

      The sliding apron with the hidden drawers is a pretty slick idea. The whole thing looks stout enough to survive apartment life.

          Wow, really nice. Plan on putting up specs? I would love to make something like that.

              These were the basic plans. I made a few modifications like tapering the legs on only two sides and the hidden drawers.

                Very nice.

                For the first two pics I was looking for the outline of the drawers. The sliding panel is a great idea.
