This is one of a pair of Arts and Crafts end tables made from plans posted in an article by Kevin Rodale in Popular Woodworking Magazine. Quarter sawn white oak with ebony inlays on the feet of the legs. Motowi tile inlaid in top. Kevin’s design was based on an original done in 1906 which was ebonized and had a square mitered top. Kevin added the pinwheel top and tile inlay.

Thank you for all the comments….and Keith, I made two of these and I highly recommend that after fitting the grid pieces together, you disassemble and do ALL your sanding and staining PRIOR to gluing. I’m pretty clean with the glue up but staining and sanding all those little corners is almost an impossible task after it’s assembled. Even rubbing out the finish was a major chore just because of the size of the grid squares.

Nicely executed. I really like Kevin’s designs.
