Mid Century End Table #1: First Shot at an End Table

174 days ago by Jerbone | 1 comment »

I have been spending most of my time learning by making some small boxes, cutting boards, shop jigs, blanket chests so far. My goal for later this year is to redo an area upstairs in my house and add a desk with shelves and cabinets. The plan is to do small projects that allow me to pick up a skill to be applied to the later project. So for my next learning experience I am building my first end table. I am starting this blog partway through the process and will cover what has been done so...

Building a Houseful of Furniture #2: Kitchen and Family Room

490 days ago by DustyMark | 3 comments »

Watch this video that gives a quick tour of the furniture I’ve built for my kitchen and family room. The rooms share an open space and this video shows the placement of the furniture in both areas. This table and chair set was a major project completed in two phases. The first phase included the first four chairs and the table. I completed the first chair in Jan 93 and the fourth in Oct 93. The table was completed in Nov 93. The second phase was the fifth and sixth chairs co...

Furniture Builds #1: Cherry Shaker-inspired End Table

541 days ago by rdwile | 9 comments »

The last time I was over at my son’s apartment he “casually” mentioned that he needed an end table beside his couch to put things on, so I decided this would be my next project. After the toolchest build I was looking for a small project that was hand tool centric that I could build in a few days. All the other pieces I have made for him have been Cherry so the wood choice was easy. I had built an end table similar to this in the past so quickly threw down some measuremen...

French Fry Friday #3: Oak End Table

1338 days ago by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

Just a reminder French Fri Friday is when I showcase some of the smaller things that often get overlooked. End tables are something that can be sold as in a pair or will even work by itself. One thing that I have learned is that to make one more versatile it is best to design and finish it where it can be view for all sides. With the need for surfaces in the middle if the room, next to a mid-room sofa, most unfinished end table will not work easily. A little planning ahead and a little mo...

Modern end table #1: Start of a modern end table

1579 days ago by doorslammer | 2 comments »

Here’s the start of my latest project. It’s a take on a modern end table. This is my own design but is definitely influenced by the stuff I’ve been looking at and been interested in lately. As usual, I’m going with walnut and using some cherry accents. I started by milling my stock to dimension and making some bridle joints to form the legs. I formed the bridle joint by using my home made tennoning jig and band saw. Later I added a square cherry peg. ...

end (side) tables with floating tops and curved legs #1: sketchup

2313 days ago by ben | 7 comments »

After lots of searching around and checking out various end table designs, I had settle on the one that SPalm did: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/3210 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 f...

Slow progress and a few new purchases

2344 days ago by jstewart | 5 comments »

I still haven’t posted my first LJ project, but I’m planning on it. I recently finished the construction phase of a basic end table that I’m actually going to use as a nightstand on my side of the bed. My wife has a nice place to put her glasses, book and a glass of water, but my side of the bed is just a pile of magazines on the floor and a cardboard file box where I toss my glass before calling it a day. Once the weather warms up a bit more, I hope to get the end table ...
