Handmade: Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table

One of the ways that I have found to supplement our inventory is to build pieces of furniture myself.  Lately I have been building reclaimed wood coffee tables with hairpin legs.  Each of the others that I have built have had a random stain pattern.  For this one I decided to challenge myself by using a geometric design.

 This is a sketch that I used for brainstorming my design.  
I liked the idea of having a continuous triangle pattern with the wood running two different directions.

NExt I cut out all of my wood strips and laid them out.  As seen in this picture.
Finally I sanded, cut, and stained the final details.

I actually finished the top a week ago but could not find hairpin legs locally.  I looked on Etsy and found this set by seller NWfilm in Seattle.  He shipped them promptly and I received them two days later.  
I plan to order legs from him for my future projects.

 Here is the finished product.  It is for sale at the Vintage Design Collective for $300 and also on Etsy
