Design coordinator Spencer Anderson gets to work on a transitional-style cocktail table. He starts by creating a rectangular cube out of medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and uses 4 x 6-inch pieces of pine for the top, which he's stained a rich espresso color. He assembles the pine pieces by drilling holes in the sides and inserting metal rods to hold the timbers together. That is then attached to the top of the cube.
