In the second installation of our three-part series on building a tiled sofa table, George Vondriska teaches you how to create a wooden frame for the tile tabletop. He walks you step by step through the building process, demonstrating the proper technique for mitering each component of the frame with a miter saw, cutting a rabbet on the underside of the frame for a substrate, and adding biscuits to the four corners in order to increase the strength of the joinery.
