« Part 1: Half Lap and Lapped Dovetail Joints Part 2 of Stickley #603 Tabouret Table series no next part

The dry assembly looked good, so I chamfered the ends of the through tenons, and glued up the table.

Lapped dovetails secure the top stretchers.

-
-
-
-
-
The half-lap joints and the lapped dovetails all came out flush.

-
-
-
-
-
Then I cut the tops with a circle cutting jig and plunge router. I used a 1/4” spiral bit and cut the top free in multiple passes.

-
-
-
-
-
The 1” thick top came out nice, with minimal sanding at the oscillating belt sander. I eased the edges with a 1/8” round-over bit at the router table, and sanded the top to 150 grit.

Here is the completed project… http://lumberjocks.com/projects/129385

Another fine project Willie. I love white oak, it really is a wonderful wood to work with and it finishes so nicely too.

Looks great so far. Will you be adding a lower shelf?

Hi John,
No, there is no shelf on this design. Some similar Stickley tables feature a lower shelf. I am notorious for omitting shelves or making them small and unusable. I would rather look at the furniture than the stack of magazines that will inevitably accumulate there.
Thanks
