Zebra Coffee Table by Mark Singer

1 of 7



I have been working on a zebra coffee table.  Its about 36 x 80".  


I carefully selected the boards at the yard.  They are all cut from one tree and I managed to find a book matched pair with an "Eye" and placed it dead center in the width. 

Good design is dependent on careful selection of materials and use.

The sides and short ends are built up from a rip miter.  The Sawstop and Boardbuddies yielded perfect results and everything is dead on at 90 degrees with no gaps.  The board buddies play an important part keeping the material flat on the table giving a consistent cut. 

The end miters were cut on the bandsaw and with great accuracy as well using my auxiliary table and a miter gauge a couple of clamps and keeping my finger crossed.

Learn how. Discover why. Build better.
