Trestle Coffee Table

When a friend sent me a picture of a Restoration Hardware inspired dining table from Shanty to Chic and asked if I could recreate it as a coffee table, I was up for the challange.  After sketching up new plans to the measurements she needed, I came up with this and am thrilled with the finished piece...and so is she!

All lumber is knotty pine.   I used pocket hole construction for most of it, but used my 16 guage nailer and glue to attach the angled pieces.  I attached the table top with "z" clips, first cutting a slot with a biscuit joiner for the clip to slide into.
