My Rustic X Coffee Table

A friend showed me a picture of a coffee table and asked if I'd build her one.  It was very similar to this plan and she loved it, so I gave it a go.  I had my table top boards run through a thickness planer and a jointer before assembling.  The table top is attached to the base with "z" clips which will allow the wood to expand if needed.  The "X's" on the side gave me a little trouble but that's likely because I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist and I needed them to be "just so". ;)

 

I was happy with the finished piece and my friend was thrilled. :)
