This coffee table was built out at the crucible. I built the frame, which consists of polished hammered solid 1" by 1/2" flat bar with 1" tubing for the legs in class. It was all tig welded. I did the wood finishing at cellspace. The wood is a single piece of Santa Maria with two coats of linseed oil and one coat of polyurethane. The magazine rack is made out of 1/4" by 3" strips of teak. I'll finish it one of these days.
