COFFEE TABLE WITH RANDOM WIDTH BOARDED SHELF
An example of a coffee table with shelf made from random width, tongue and groove, beaded boards.
THE COFFEE TABLES SPECIFICATION
my workshop in Hampshire, to individual specification, the wooden
coffee tables are hand crafted in selected prime F.S.A. certified oak
Each coffee table is to my original design, made with traditional mortise and tenon joints, and is signed and dated on the underside.
COFFEE TABLE COMPONENTS
table legs can be produced in a variety of styles: hand turned,
plain, tapered, fluted and corner beaded, or curved are just some of
The rails and top can also be plain, for a more modern or contemporary design, or embellished with various moldings in the case of more traditional designs.
COFFEE TABLES WITH STORAGE
coffee tables I construct incorporate added storage. This can take the
form of a pot shelf, or magazine shelf: either low down, or immediately
underneath the coffee table top, or the storage can be provided in the
form of drawers. The drawers can be custom sized: to accommodate DVDs
or CDs for example.
One design feature of the storage shelves, that is a speciality of mine, is to make them from tongue and grooved, beaded boards, that are random widths. This contributes to the individual, custom made look of the coffee table.
All the components of the coffee tables are belt sanded, wet down to raise the grain, and then hand sanded with 150 grit sand paper. If required, they can then be stained with wood dye. Finally, the tables are hand finished with shellac and antique wax or with a water based lacquer.
