Garrett's Trundle Storage Coffee Table

I built this coffee table after my father-in-law accidentally broke my Rooms-to-Go coffee table by sitting on it. It ended up working out pretty well in the end because now I have a place to store all the excess blankets my kids use that were piled up "neatly" in the corner behind the end table. The plans were very helpful in getting all the measurements just right but don't go into any detail on how to actually go about assembling the table. My biggest regret would be how I connected the two tabletop ends. I used wood dowels and glue. It is holding up very well and looks nice but I didn't get as snug of a fit as I would have liked. I definitely recommend using a different joining technique. This was my first project using the plans on this website and I am looking forward to my next project.
