I have always liked the style of these little Stickley side tables, and I finally had a chance to build a pair. For small, simple-looking tables they do have some nice joinery challenges. Half laps, through tenons, and lapped dovetails add to the fun. Any home has room for these tabouret tables, so if you admire the Stickley style as I do, I suggest you give it a whirl.
Here is a discussion on the building techniques…

Beautiful, Willie, but you scared me.

When I looked at the table-in-a-corner shot, I thought I was looking at a cutting board top.


And then I realized that it ain’t :)

It looks great, Willie. You have inspired me to put a pair of these on my project list. I just need to get approval from my Chief Decorating Officer. :) Thank you!

I’ve some real nice QSWO that I have earmarked for a Morris chair and foot stool, just waiting to clear the “shop” of enough stuff to set up the table saw properly. Then, that there little table will be made to set my glass of Scotch on while reading a book. I expect that this idea will be realized in late 2017, at the rate I’m going. Too many irons in the fire, which may be a blacksmith’s complaint, but is apropos.
