My fiancee has been wanting a way to elegantly display her horse ribbons in the house. One idea she liked was the Ribbon box seen here This in all honesty is just a short stool with a box on it. I wanted to make something more useful but serving the same purpose. So my idea is an end table with glass sides framed in wood with a glass top also framed in wood. I decided on Red Oak for all the wood including the legs and the frames. I picked up 2×2’s for the legs and 1×3’s for the frames at Lowe’s. The 2×2’s were about $7.50 a piece and the 1×3’s were about $1.50 a foot.

I cut the 2×2 legs to were total height of the end table with a 3/4” top will be 24”. I cut the 1×3 frames to 18” long and 10” high. I then used my Kreg pocket hole system, sorry not comfortable yet using my dovetail jig to possibly waste $35 in Red Oak 1×3’s, to set the joints. This is currently were I am at in the project. My though is 1/4 glass on the sides so I will be using my table saw and dado blades to cut a 1/4 notch in the middle of the 1×3 frames to hold the glass sides.

Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated.
