These tables were a team effort between my son and me. His design and joint labor.
He wanted a tv stand that can hold his XBOX and a side table for his couch. The table tops are made from some scrap ash that his grandfather collected 20 years ago from the scrap pile of a canoe paddle manufacturing company in northern Maine. It had several cracks that needed bow tie patches. That along with the live edge was what attracted him to that piece of wood. The bow ties are walnut as are the dowel supports used to connect the two layers of the table. The dowels are wedged with maple. There is a hand shaped walnut hook that will hold his headphones. The only purchase made for these tables are the hairpin legs which he found on ETSY.
The side table is made from a cutoff of the board used for the other table, pine skirt and the tapered legs are made from 2×4s.
