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.

Layout & Measuring
With a small collection of the right tools, you can handle just about any layout task — efficiently and accurately.
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
