In this video, I build a modern coffee table from rift sawn white oak. This coffee table is not my design and was an interpretation from a photo sent to me. I’ve built a few coffee tables over the years, but none with so many woodworking mistakes that needed to be problem solved and overcome. LOL. But hey, those are always the best lessons. In the end, the modern coffee table turned out great and I’m happy with the final result. I hope you enjoy following along with the process of building this white oak modern coffee table! #midcenturymodern #modernfurniture #coffeetable
