Builders Showcase // Crate and Barrel Reef Sofas Chair and Fire Table

Builders Showcase / Crate and Barrel Reef Sofas Chair and Fire Table

I modified the Design Confidential's plans to accomodate larger cushions and made a fire table to match. The plans are easy to follow and the Kreg jig made assembly a cinch.
