Rustic X Coffee Table First

Submitted by ShaunEDM on Mon, 05/04/2015 - 20:45

Came across this plan as my first wood working project. Took the corner brackets to a different level, spoke with a local blacksmith who created the brackets for me to give it a more rustic feel.  Created the nails, same way they were done in the early 1800's.

Total time took me longer than normal since this was my first project.  Otherise I could see hammering out one of these a day (excluding waiting for stain to dry)

Very excited to keep going, thanks for the great site Anna!
