Walnut and poplar side table for a specific spot next to the couch that a “normal” size table wont fit.
Table is 11” wide and 30” long.

This is the first project I got to use my new taper jig on (to make the legs).

Thanks for looking and please leave me feedback!

Looks really good. What did you use to finish the top?

thanks, bigguy. Although I really dislike painting furniture (or painting at all), I am becoming very partial to white furniture with walnut tops. I have another bench made in the same design.

Thanks Jon! I’m not from Texas, but I love good beer.

They are the same type of mortises made by a domino, however I use a regular router with a mortising jig to create them.

“I use a regular router with a mortising jig” BRILLIANT!

If you like really good beers, such as Shiner, try a Saint Arnolds… from right here in Houston!

Merry Christmas from Shiner to you, and a great finish as well. Nice table! Gotta love building something for a specific spot.
