So here’s the plan. I watched the Wall Hung Console episode of the New Yankee Workshop and my wife really liked the table. She thinks it would look great in the front hall. I thought it would be a good use of the walnut lumber my in-laws gave me, so now I’m finally getting started.

I took as many notes as I could from watching the episode and then plugged the dimensions in to SketchUp. I had to improvise some more of the dimensions since Norm didn’t mention all of them. So here’s my version of Norm’s console table.

Here’s all the walnut ready to be machined.

That’s one of my favorite episodes! I’ve always wanted to build one. I’m looking forward to your blog. Nice choice on the walnut. It will be very classy looking.
