Craftsman Coffee Table

Quartersawn oak, mortise and tenon joinery, and a beveled glass top make this coffee table a welcome addition to any home.

There are twenty-six spindles in this craftsman-style coffee table, which with traditional methods would mean a lot of mortises to drill and square up with a chisel. Fortunately, we came up with a different procedure to make the mortises both quickly and accurately at the table saw. The beveled glass top complements the table beautifully. However, if you prefer the more traditional look of a solid wood top, we’ve included that as an option.
