PROJECTS
Drop-leaf coffee table
With its turned legs and drop-leaf tabletop, you may be surprised to find that this project can be built in just a few days. The secret? A simple design and some ready made legs. (Plus, we've included a matching sofa table).

Country wall shelf
To give this wall shelf a country look, we used knotted pine, simple construction, and a beaded-board back. And if you want an attractive display cabinet, there are doors you can add to the shelf. Either way, it's a quick , easy-to-build project.

Storage chest
You'll find plenty of room for storage, but you won't find any hint that it's built from veneered particle board and ready-made mouldings. One trip to the hardware store will get you everything that's needed to build this handsome chest.

TECHNIQUES
