My wife and I shopped for a coffee table to fit our space and couldn’t seem to find anything that was functional and matched our decor. One day she asked me “Do you think you could build me one”? I had never built any furniture or anything out of wood before, so I turned our dining room table over looked at the joinery and said…”I can try.”
So I ran down to my nearest hardwood dealer bought some stock and with nothing more than a mental picture, started building. Thank the wood gods for Kreg, Rockler and the internet. Miter and Circular Saw, fixed base Router, and a Kreg pocket hole jig.
The table fit perfectly into our living room and my family enjoys many asian style meals and board games on it.
