This 30”x 60” heavy timber coffee table is loaded with style! Rustic yet refined, the defining characteristic of this table is the sophisticated taper on the beefy 6x post legs. You will enjoy admiring your handiwork in any setting – the size of this coffee table is perfect for just about any space.
Crafting this table with traditional timber frame joinery will make you proud for years to come. The tenons on the upper and lower tie beams are secured into mortises on the post legs with ¾” white oak pegs. The substantial 1” thick top is fastened to the upper tie beams with 6mm screws countersunk from below.
This table is a perfect project for a beginning timber framer, with smaller timbers than a pavilion, and only a few joints to cut. Yet even an experienced framer will be proud to show off this project. You can put your personal stamp on this heavy timber coffee table with the species of wood you decide to use. One cool idea would be to use one variety for the legs and tie beams, and a contrasting variety of wood (or stain) for the top and pegs. You can also easily adjust the size to meet your needs.
