After lots of searching around and checking out various end table designs, I had settle on the one that SPalm did:
I even asked him if he minded me using his design. In the meanwhile, I was reading Don Kondra’s photography entry and looked up his FWW article and was immediately in love. (Sorry, Steve… I just can’t fight it!)
So, I did some measuring and built up a sketchup design that thins the original plans down a touch and fits with the dimensions that I need. And here we go:
The sketchup is available here. Frankly, this sketchup was a serious challenge due to the curved legs and even the mitered table top (took me a while to figure out the “smart” way to solve that problem).
I am leaving for vacation in 10 days, and haven’t acquired wood yet, so I probably won’t make any progress for a month, but thought I’d share the sketchup and pic.
I welcome any and all commentary—positive and negative. I haven’t done curved legs before, so I think that will be the biggest challenge here. Luckily Don’s article has a pretty good explanation of what’s going on.
