The coffee table legs
This project required a particular height as a student work table and also to double as a coffee table. The client also wanted some turned pine legs cut from another piece of furniture incorporated into the design. Some minor adjustments needed to be made to the coffee table legs on a lathe so they could be attached to the top which resulted in a handsome piece of furniture.
