CRAFTS & HOBBIES / Woodwork

This coffee table was inspired by The Charles P. Limbert Co.'s Table 153, designed when the coffee table as a furniture form didn't yet exist. Kevin Rodel took that classic table and reconfigured it for today's home. The signature crisp-cornered square cutouts and gridwork for the end panels and shelf may look complicated, but Rodel's tricks for assembly make it easy to get a perfect grain match without much fuss. Shaped corbels add another signature detail to the table.
