I made this table entirely from oak. It was somewhat more expensive than other projects I've done but my wife wanted a new coffee table so I thought why not go for it. I found hard wood to be much easier to work with than other wood. I like how it turned out. I used "Mom's Train Table" plan but added two 22 inch deep draws. A little extra storage is always a good thing!
