An oak coffee table. Strong clean lines, large surfaces, with fold-over edges and showcased end grain. No skirts, aprons, shadow gaps, offsets, mouldings or exposed joinery. Finished with a white tint to complement its new home. The wood does the talking.
It's official. I have built a cabinet. It may only be the same pine cabinet that every other student also has to make as part of the course, but it's mine, and it's my first build. But something else I have discovered is the woodworker's curse: the curse of knowing all of the mistakes that are within your piece.
