Spread dark wax on the door to give it a finished look. Make sure to do the edges, especially the edge that was cut. Buff out the wax and do a second coat.
Lay the door face down on a drop cloth. Place the coffee table frame on the back of the door, making sure it is centered and even. Attach the base to the door using L-brackets on all four corners. If necessary, paint L-brackets to match the color of the base.
Take exact measurements of top of door and order a piece of tempered glass for the top.
