Thanks Jay, you are correct.  Osborne Wood offers a variety of species options; for this post we chose knotty pine based on affordability specifically for the DIY market.  To be clear, the legs are the only component made of pine, the rest of the build is poplar and hardwood plywood.  Regarding the joining method, our content is DIY'er focused and more specifically, Beginner DIY'er focused so we strive to keep our projects as simple as they are appealing.  While mortise and tenon does provide a stronger joint, it is also a technique that may intimidate the beginner due to the level of acumen the technique requires.

 This is a nice looking project however since it is made of pine and the length and height of the piece structure strength is important.  I noted that the stretchers and all of the components are butt joints with pocket holes.  I would think that mortise and tendon would be the better solution to give this some strength to resist weight and stress of movement.  I say this as pine is a soft wood and is a weak wood for structure strength unless a more solid wood connection is made.  The mortise and tendon would be my choice.   Don't get me wrong, this is a very nice looking piece with great eye appeal but since this is supposed to be a learning site I though I should pass along this suggestion.

Thank you for posting this .

Yes, it's the same company. The coffee table we built at the Haven Conference had the Colonial Coffee Table leg. The House of Wood coffee table leg is for the Balustrade coffee table I built. Their website is www.osbornewood.com.

Absolutely! The legs are from Osborne Wood Products. They were custom made for this project, but are now available for sale on their website at less than $14/leg (for the knotty pine). It's called the House of Wood Foyer leg. :)

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
