Here are the pics of the work in progress, amost there :)

Sidetable 1
Looks pretty much how I imagined it would!

Top is a bit dusty here

The stretchers are attached using Miller Dowels, I’m a big fan of them and use them all the time. I’m going to add the pieces to strengthen those rails tomorrow. Left some areas unfinished to get good glue adhesion but couldn’t wait to get that first coat of poly/oil on :) Another five coats, then some oil/wax to finish and it’s whisky time :)

Thanks Karson :) Nice to finally put my scrap to good use. I’ve had that piece of Zebrano lying around forever, waiting for me to figure out a good use for it. It’s such a striking wood that it’s just too much for most projects.

It’s looking great. I’m going to break out the miller dowels tomorrow. Going to make a couple of shop fixtures.

I really like the design of the table. Makes the top look like it is floating. Great job.

That’s a great table Damian. I like the way you’ve elevated the top. In the first picture it almost seems to be just hovering there.

Fantastic Damian….really, really, nice. Beautiful mix of woods. I love how the top floats. That’s going to look great with a whiskey glass on it.

Tom, it’s about 20-21 inches high I think and the top is 16×14 (again I think, have to double check). I dangled a tape measure over the edge of the chair to get the perfect height :)
