This was my first attempt at any type of table building. I made a custom coffee table for my new place because I could not find a table which would fit the narrow space I had between the couch & television, and after about a month of shopping I was tired of searching shop after shop for one.
The items are pretty simple, the only real added difficulty was the 2nd recessed shelf I decided to add for more storage, but all elements followed a similar process so you could easily do a table without the additional shelf.
