This is a fun little coffee table made of scrap plywood and purpleheart. The concept is simple - a table held together by the strength and connection of its individual parts, no fasteners or hardware needed. For the materials, I chose scrap plywood for the tabletop and legs because frankly this was a bit of a prototype and I didn't want to invest too much into the table with my limited skill set. For the wedges that hold everything together, however, I used high quality purpleheart to emphasize the importance of that connection. I'm quite proud of how this turned out, and I learned how to use a few new tools along the way!
I roughly cut the plywood pieces with a jigsaw and then used a file to smooth out the curves and sharpen the slot holes
