I decided to come up with an upgrade.

EASY Industrial Coffee Table (No Welding!)

Tuesday, September 2, 2014 -

I often get asked what is my favorite piece of furniture I have built. Although there have been many pieces I've loved, I am especially proud of my World Market "Aiden" Knock-off. This is the first piece I welded by my self, and it totally fits my style.
