Easy Woodworking Project for Beginners
This is one of those woodworking projects that I’ve had in the back of my mind for months. We don’t have room for end tables in our living room and depending on where you sit the coffee table can be out of reach. This project was made in about 2 hours which includes the time it took to glue and finish. Something I don’t do very often is go into a project without a plan and that’s exactly what I did here and it turned out great. I just started cutting to size on the table saw what I thought looked to be a good size. The center piece is 4″ x 4″ with a 2 7/8″ hole drilled in the middle. Many of you may not have a forstner bit that big and a jigsaw would do just fine in this situation. The bottom is made up of leather scraps I got from a local art scrap store. Another option would be to take an old pair of jeans and I think that would work equally as well. If you make this project be sure to Tweet me some photos! I’d love to see what you come up with! Be passionate and Make Something!
