Make a coffee table

DAY CLASS INTERMEDIATE
Make a coffee table to take away. The standard material used for this project is Pine. An upgrade to hardwood is possible if you are trying to match the table to your existing furniture – please contact us for a quotation at david@greatbritishwoodshop.co.uk

You will cut materials to size from the drawing, learn marking out techniques to create mortise and tenons for the side rails of the table and machine up the pieces for the table top. We will use the Jointer to machine the edges for a perfect fit and the router to create the perfect mortise.

You will also learn how to secure the top to the table and glue and clamp all the pieces together. No fixings in this project, this is a joinery class.

Please make sure you have room in your car to take the completed piece home with you. The finished size of the table is not set, you can vary the size to suit your requirements. Perhaps an end table or bedside table will complete your home decor. Just let David know on the day what size you would like to make and you can customise it as you see fit.

The standard size is approximately 1000mm (L) x 500mm (W) x 400mm (H)

REVIEWS

This was a fantastic workshop. With no experience, my son and I made a really top notch coffee table and bedside table that we are both really happy with. The workshop was very well equipped and David was a master at explaining the intricacies of how to do things properly. Thank you very much indeed.

"I thoroughly enjoyed this course and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in getting started with some woodwork and DIY projects. The way the course is structured allows you to gain an understanding in how to work with wood and learn more about the tools and range of techniques available, while also putting it all in practice on the day. David is very knowledgeable and has a very personal approach so he tailors the content to your experience and what you're trying to get out of the day."
