A friend of mine needed a new coffee table, and he wanted something unique. I drew up a couple different designed and settled on this as I didn't want the chevron pattern to just go all the same way and look like a arrow. So after I snapped some lines on a plywood base, I started with a bunch of 45° angle cuts and went at it. Made the frame and added a shelf. It is stained in espresso trim and the top is bare wood with clear coat. The top and legs are cedar, trim is spruce, and shelf is birch.
