My shop has become somewhat of a magnet for these types of ‘projects.’ My wife’s nephew ran across this table and dropped it off at my shop door; it was waiting for me when I got home from work last Thursday.
Not a high-craftsmanship piece at all. Joinery consists of half-laps and cut miters, along with a generous use of headed nails. Aprons quite thin as well, with evidence of the top being nailed to the base of this thing (!). Oh, and no parts of said top came with the table.
Interesting bead detail, though, that was once painted red. Think it was a #45 that did it, or #66 beader, or ??
No plans other than to hold onto it awhile and complete a few other projects currently in-work. But thought I’d send it up for review in the meantime. Thanks for looking!
