Step 5: The storage..
Check the pictures..
By this stage I have already chopped the top and bottom off the coffee table (notice how the unstained parts where I removed the routed edges is no longer as big? - 1/2inch instead of 3inches)
To do this, I VERY CAREFULLY ran the whole box over the table saw after VERY CAREFULLY checking that I'd removed all nails and screws.
This was a little awkward due to the size and weight of the box shape that makes up the table. Though not as heavy as it was with the routed edging and table top.
