This is a 2 part series on ” How to build your own Log Coffee Table”.
We will take a look at the kind of material that you can use in your log coffee table. This table is going to be kind of funky and rustic and only have 3 legs. The material we are going to use in this project is Western Red Cedar, the table top is a slab from the butt or flare of the tree. The legs are just funky pieces of the same material that I picked up whilst I was selective logging.
Some of the tools that I will be using to do this will be the Chain Saw, a Japanese Ink Line, a 6″ Makita Power Planner and a Makita Belt Sander.
In part one we are going to look at laying out the table top, drawing a straight line on a curve and free hand cutting with the chain saw.
