Today I’m building a DIY coffee table out of a Live Edge Slab with WATERFALL LEGS!! This was a ton of fun and I learned a lot in the process, my friend Ashe showed me some new techniques and I got to try our some new tools along the way! It’s been a minute since I’ve gotten to do some real woodworking and make a nice furniture piece and I had a blast building this one! Let me know your thoughts… and no, the glue joints aren’t going to break 🙂

Hi, My name is Mike Montgomery and I’m a MAKER; a designer, builder, and full-time content creator. Accessibility is my focus with Modern Builds, not simply accessibility of designs, but accessibility in materials, information, and projects themselves. I’ve focused on creating furniture and DIY projects that are simple enough that any beginner maker can accomplish, yet interesting enough that any expert might be inspired. Building and making is becoming less and less of an exclusive hobby and profession. My goal is to reduce that separation even further.
