Using the plans found in the April 2004 issue of Workbench magazine I made this table from QSRO. Finish: TransTint Reddish-Brown dye, Minwax Early American stain, Semi-gloss lacquer. It was a challenging and fun build with all the angle cuts. I was surprised during the dry fit when everything went together the way is was suppose to. I picked up some new skills and confidence with this project.

That’s a great looking A&C tabourette! I love the ray fleck—and I really like your entire A&C furniture suite! Very nice!

Yes! Angles are challenging, but your table came out great. It’s a fine piece and should be displayed proudly. It looks terrific in that setting by the way.

Bravo, well done.

No edge-banding. Router and shop built trammel used to cut out the table top then chamfer the edge.
