This end table was a lot of fun to build. I bought the plans a few years ago when I visited Homestead Heritage. It’s a very pretty place and was fun to visit. Someday I’d love to take a woodworking class there.

While we were walking around and looking at the woodworking shop, we ran into Paul Sellers who was teaching a class. He was very friendly and even gave us a demonstration of how to taper the table legs with a handsaw and a plane like he does in the class (it was the lunch break for the class, and they were making this table).

The finish is Watco’s natural danish oil and then 3 coats of GF’s Arm-R-Seal Satin on the top (2 on the legs/aprons). I finally kept track of the total time spent on a project, this one came out at ~17hrs.

Very Nice!!

I like the simplicity of the design. It reminds me of a Shaker piece.

That design and woodgrain make it a little work of art.
