When I bought my first tool I decided to do my first piece of furniture. My father-in-law gave me two bits of oak, which he had for years. I decided to make a table. The main idea I had was maximum simplicity with minimal variety of materials. The combination of massive, solid oak legs and a thick, polished, tempered glass gave the expected effect. Deep jam legs attach the table top in a reliable and powerful way. There is no fear that the table will move or overturn. Fixing the jam does not require any adhesives or other mechanical joints. Total weight is quite hefty and two adults are required to move the table.
Dimensions: 1200 x 700 x 550mm. Tempered glass table top with a thickness of 10mm. This project is simple and easy to make – try it yourself!
