My friend took the coffee table home with her and put it in it’s proper place. Here’s a couple of photos.
Here are a few more pictures of my work on the coffee table and a bit of the blow by blow. Oh and a little bit on how I store my hide glue.
I used my Jeff Hamilton panel gauge to size my shelf panel.
I marked out the bevels on the legs and cut them with my rip saw.
Then I used my No. 4 to clean up the bevels.
Walnut strip in the shelf.
And then added my mark and date.
For the captured tongue on the shelf I used my side rabbet plane to widening the mortise.
I used chalk to check the fit.
A coat of shellac first and then the wipe on poly.
Here’s how I store my hide glue. Pour it in an ice cube tray and store the hide cubes in a container in the fridge. Then only take out what you need.

This post means I’m starting to Think about making one and starting to collect information. Tim Manney has a great one that I’ll be using as a go by.

A friend asked me to make a small coffee table for her. The table is loosely based on Gregory Palolini’s design but smaller an no bread board ends. The table will be all cherry with a clear finish which will allow it to darken in their sun filled living room.
Here are a few progress shots.
