This coffee table draws design inspiration from the Danish mid-century period. Its floating top, pencil-roll edge and angled legs add pizzazz. The use of floating tenons speeds construction of the angled joinery, while doubling up the mortise-and-tenon joinery adds strength to the base. Because the inside faces of the legs are flush to the inside faces of the front and rear aprons, the side aprons and the cross rails are the same length, which keeps the design simple.



CAD-drawn plans and a cutlist for this project are available in the Fine Woodworking store.
