Redwood Coffee Table

 

Built from a single air-dried slab of redwood 2.5 inches thick. Stretcher board is lauan. No power tools of any kind were used during construction.

Working the raw wood with some heirloom planes. These belonged to my grandfather. The scrub plane in the foreground takes deep, narrow cuts for rapid stock removal. The big jointer plane is not in very good shape, but did a fair job of leveling the large surfaces.
