I thought I would never ve able to make one of these lovely wood creations on my own, but I found this video on Youtube explaining exactly how to make a coffee table out of a wooden log slice and I realized I was completely underestimating myself and I pulled myself up by the bootstraps and made this gorgeous coffee table for my new living room. I started by getting all my necessary materials together.
