1. HI Paul ,
    I just finished a Coffee table using your 2013 Videos and was happy with how it turned out . I have a couple more planned for family members and look forward to incorporating the new design features you have added . I particularly like how the bent laminations will add to the joint strength while maintaining a lighter look .

  2. Thanks Paul. One of the things that I’ve noticed from the image before you hit play, if you look at the couch, chair, and stool legs is that they all have some angle to them. Looks like you carried that into the coffee table. I’m guessing that isn’t by accident and as you mention it is a style you like for your home.

  3. I’m new to this wonderful site. What a great bunch of projects and instruction. Bravo.

    Question: It appears that a project such as this coffee table will have several episodes. What is the typical timeline for posting those?


  4. As a young man with making as his hobby thank you for the Sellers Home project! I look forward to filling my home with the beautiful furniture that you are teaching us all how to make. Piece by piece

  5. Paul, I appreciate the look of the coffee table. I also found it helpful simply to see you noodle around with the size & design.
    I never thought of myself as someone who could begin with a thought and turn it into a finished piece. I had the excuse “ I’m just not the creative type” at my beck and call. Yet after listening to you I’m not so confined that is true after all.
    Thank you for teaching an old dog a new trick ( or at least gave me a change of perspective).
    I am grateful.

  6. A beautiful table it is, and I most enjoyed the design considerations.
    I’m about halfway through building a hall table 48x14x41 out of rough sawn cherry. A delightful way to continue my therapy this way. Planing is good exercise!
    All my best to you, Paul.

  7. Morning Paul. I wonder if you could give me some advice on using through tenons and wedges on small tables like this so they can be disasembled. 45mm legs with 20 x 10 through tenons in Australian Black Butt (very hard). Do they last long term, will they be hard to fit with temp moisture changes etc. I know you can’t give a difinitive answer but I would apprieciate any experience you’ve had with them.
    Thanks ChrisB

    1. I asked Paul and his reply was:
      To make any knock down table that it is as rigid as the pieces we make can be complicated because when you suddenly get into a multiplicity of joints compensation has to come from somewhere which often leads to compromise.
