Heavy Hemfir Rugged Coffee Table

My wife and I needed a small coffee table sufficiently heavy to withstand strong winds at our dock by the bay. Hence, I made the pictured table from a 2x6, 2x4's, & a 4x4. The table is intentionally rugged, weighs about 50 lbs, and satisfies the need well.

The project required cross-cutting all the wood (including the 4x4), and in addition, ripping some of the wood. The project is held together by countersunk wood screws. An attractive edge is routed on the top surface. The piece is finished with Jacobean stain and clear satin polyurethane.

The table was made using plans specially modified from drawings found on the Internet.

The project involved the Ryobi tools described in this listing, in addition to other standard woodworking tools.
