no previous part Part 1 of Southwest end tables series Part 2: I am soooo done planning. »

Howdy, I need 2 end table to go with my latest cocktail table. I figure they don’t have to match the cocktail table exactly, they don’t even have to use the same wood.

It makes it easier to cut the pieces if I’m working from a design layout. Even though the following layout is almost identical to the cocktail table, it’s different enough to add some interest. If you can see the thin green lines, they represent where the small drawer will be.

I’ll start cutting once I’m finished designing the 2nd table.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Mark,
I wonder how that design would look on an old Martin guitar top…..I’ll have to stick with playing music, cause I sure couldn’t make that design on anything…...That’s above my noggin…..!!!

Thanks Mr. Joe!
Rick, I’ve seen your work. This would be child’s play to you. I think the pattern would look awesome on a Martin. It wouldn’t sound good but it would look awesome. ;)

-- Thanks for all the lessons!
