We have complete plans available for this table on our website and the project covers several woodworking topics such as wood selection, milling, panel making, creating custom jigs, cutting steep angles, making miter splines and much more.

  2. I'd like to see more tips on special joints, like where the legs join the cross piece. It was awesome that you showed us how strong it was!

  4. Hey guys, nice design and work. One issue however, and it's a big one. You didn't account for seasonal expansion and contraction. I noticed you also oiled the tenons before putting the top on and neglected to comment on this procedure as you mentioned earlier that you will permanently attach the top. Perhaps you recongized the mistake and addressed it and II'm behind the times here?. Otherwise, now the top floats freely unless dry locked from whichever month and climate it's in, that's not good. And when locked up something will eventually give like a crack in the top, leg assembly or point of fastening. 
    One approach , how I would do it, is using 1/8" x 1" flat stock aluminum as a stretcher from tenon to tenon across the width of the top. Rout a channel in the top underside to hide the bar (or not, nobody see ..or use a piece of cheery and make it an element) Then, set the ends into the tenons flush and in both cases for attaching use 1/4/20 threaded inserts and countersink machine screws into the bar( slot the holes in the bar so the screws can slide as the top moves back and forth along the bar(don't over thighten). This maintains your look , form and function but most of all resolves an engineering issue without compromising your design. I like it but am very interested in how you will correct this flaw. Cheers!

  7. Excellent content right here! Love the design, attention to detail, and explanation you provide in the video.

    I’m curious, could the rectangle top be substituted for a oval top of a similar overall length and not look funny with the leg/base design? My initial thought is that if the stretcher length and leg width proportions could be balanced to fit the oval so the legs not protrude from the sides it would look fine. Thoughts?

  8. It's always satisfying to improve a design, you've done well to do it on aesthetics, mechanics, and production.

    Excellent video, thanks for sharing

  10. Beautiful table — sort of a Googie/Scandinavian look, very popular in the early 80s but old enough now to look classic rather than dated. My only note would be the exposed tenon: the problem is (in my eyes) the tenons are so short, that it isn’t obvious the exposure is intentional. If you ever revisit the design, I would at least consider making them longer and wider, so they are obviously structural. Chamfered, instead of rounded, edges might improve the effect.

  13. Nice, well thought out design. Did you consider any expansion of the top with the way its attached to the legs? Seems like any expansion or contraction would stress the leg to center piece joint. I noticed a couple other comments regarding this.

  15. My living room and dining room are one space. I think that it would be awesome to have the coffee table and a dining room table of the same design!

  19. Beautiful design. have you concidered using a bridle joint insted of a spline, It still looks cool and it's stronger, you can trim it to fit the profile angle 🙂
