I had some left over stair treads and cut offs from my stair project, so I decided to try my hand at making a small entry table. I ripped down the stair treads and used other left over items from the newel post construction for the materials.
Legs are laminated from 4/4 tread stock and the top is from the newel cut offs. Front and sides are a glue up of the flat pieces and a small beaded insert which I trimmed with the bandsaw for the curve. Its not a perfect fit, but I’m very happy with the drawer face which is cut out of the front so the grain is continuous across the front. Finish is a tung oil finish as I really like the natural look. Just waiting on the craftsman style drawer pull my wife ordered to finish it off.
This is my first attempt at a actual piece of furniture and I feel pretty pleased overall considering I didn’t work from a plan, just mostly TLAR approach. It’s not perfect by any means and there are some flaws if you get to looking under the hood too closely. Originally I was planning on giving it away as I really built it just to see if I could, but the wife likes it so much she’s decided to keep it.
