The coffee table project is entering a new phase with the fabrication of the table top. The table top has been designed using frame and panel construction. In this case, the frame will literally be like a picture frame with a wood panel in the place of a picture. The frame of the top will be red oak like the rest of the table, but the center of the top will be made from my favorite figured wood: tiger maple. Lots of pictures:
The next step is to fabricate the pieces that will form the panel of the table top then to glue everything together.
