Here’s my interpretation of Gustav Stickley’s No. 603 tabouret. This little round table works great in almost any decor.
The construction of the table looks deceptively simple, but it has it’s fair share of challenges. You have to be accurate and precise in the execution of the joinery to make the through tenons and interlocking cross members fit perfect.
There is a multi-part video series for this project (Part 1 was released 12/7/08, the rest of the videos will be coming soon). In the video, I make two of these tables side by side – each with very different methods. I compare and contrast how to build an authentic version of this table versus an “imposter” table. I think you’ll enjoy seeing the choices in materials and construction that goes into each distinct method.
