Hi guys sorry I had to leave so abruptly last night
Thanks for the help with ideas for an Ats coffee table, I was messing around at work today and came up with this as a start.
As you guys came up with the ideas I thought you deserved to critique it. I haven't rounded the ends yet as I think sharp angels look pretty cool on this but I will bow to your wishes, I'd also appreciate input on whether you think the dimensions are correct and any more ideas.

So without further ado

The first leg of the ATS coffee table

I like it a lot, but how does it connect? the bottom part of the A I mean. Will there be a base?

But it's looking yummy. I wish I could work with wood like that.. My constructions always fall apart.

What shape is the table? Are you making like a tripod with a circle or oval top? Or is the ATS part going to be on 2 separate ends?

I was thinking a triangular formation
No kids here so if put correctly it should balance well failing that adding .com gives plenty of scope
