In this series of videos, I’m going to take you through the process as I build this walnut coffee table. The table is all solid wood construction with an open shelf and 2 drawer design. It features curves on all 4 sides which carry through both the horizontal and vertical dividers and the drawer fronts. The horizontal dividers join to the legs though their bread boards – the subtop is dovetailed and the shelf is tenoned into the legs.
In this first video, I’ll layout and mill the rough lumber, create the shelf and subtop, and dovetail the subtop into the legs.
