Longhorn -- do you have printed plans for that coffee table, or is this just a piece you found on the web? I like that table too, and would love to give it a go.

You said you were having trouble finding 3x3 stock? I believe the stock they make baseball bats with are this size ... although not oak. I know my hardwood supplier sometimes gets the rejected ones by the pallet load. If your lucky, maybe the same type of thing exits around your parts? Good luck.

Hey Dave,

No printed plans. I actually saw this table at Pottery Barn. My girlfriend forced me to go with her . I saw the table there and got that image from their website. I haven't started yet but will try to get it going sometime soon. Post some pics if you decide to build it.

Hey Partrick,

Curious now...what kind of wood are baseball bats made from? Who is your supplier if you don't mind me asking. What state do you live in? I don't think my state (TX) is known for making bats, although we're known for fielding some great baseball teams .

Sorry it took so long to reply ... vacation. :)

I'm a tiny bit north of Texas ... in Ontario, Canada. They had a great deal on them for $12 ea. Here's a photo of what they had.
