Realization -
 
It was brought to my attention this morning that we need a side table.
 

 
A few months ago I picked up some really nice cherry and ash from Suwanee Lumber. I’m sure the stock has had enough time to get used to my shop. So, perhaps it’s time to start working on a two-tier side table.
 
It might take me a few days to determine what this table should look like … so, stay tuned to see what I come up with.
 
Thanks for looking, more to come!

Hmm. Looks to me like you have a perfectly serviceable place to set your cups and such. ;-)

We must be getting old, Dave. It is becoming harder and harder to reach those cups! LOL!

I’ll be looking for your next post, the design of the table. Have a specific style in mind?

Thanks, Tom. As to the style … I want something to compliment the two Hepplewhite stands I already have in the bedroom. So, most likely something Hepplewhite-ish.  I want two tiers with a drawer or two so I’m thinking not much room to taper the legs. I like the way the legs, on your Three Drawer Hall Credenza, terminate … I just might have to steal that design (less the beading). I really enjoyed that eight panel door on Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu, as well … I may do something akin to that (less the bevels)  for the top of this table … we’ll see. Thanks for asking.

Maybe you’d better build a table. ;-)

That’s the perfect table. It blends in with the rug. Just remove the legs from the chairs.

I’ll be following, Ron! I am thinking my next project will be an end table or two for the couch…
