I was moving to a new apartment and found myself in need of a new coffee table. I wanted to make something unique, but not impossible to make with the relatively limited tools at my disposal. Fortunately, I had just signed up for a few months of membership at my local TechShop
here in Pittsburgh, so I now had access to a ShopBot CNC router. After a quick google search, I had a couple designs I was interested in mimicking (I don't even try to pretend I have the creativity needed to make something aesthetically pleasing). I eventually settled on the Cross Coffee Table
, a discontinued model from Design Within Reach
. It was stylish and made only from flat components, allowing me to cut everything from one piece of wood.
