    Marc might have written the book on hybrid woodworking but Anne shows a perfect execution of the hybrid style of woodworking. This is really two projects in one. You will learn how to build a table and a nice box. The nice thing is the box isn’t attached to the table so if you need the extra room on the table, you can just take the box off. With a little modification, the box would make a great charging station.
