Default Coffee table

Here's a little coffee table that I made for a customer a few days ago. She furnished the granite and I did the base. It's about 44" long, 22" wide, and 18" high. The legs came from King and I did the rest. Finish is antique copper vein powder coat with a glossy clear coat. I designed the under slung shelf to attach to the table frame and not the legs since they are cast iron.

Stone and steel are always a good looking combo. Very nice.

Nice work, Jim. I have to get around to doing myself a coffee table someday, when something inspiring wanders by...like your granite slab. Good eye for what works.

Thanks for the kind words to everybody. The shelf is 3/4" square tubing. The bends were done on a Shop Outfitters bender.
