This is a pine bedside table that one of the park residents ordered to hold their C pap machine.
It is made from 2×4s and 2×6’s from a park model on site A-1 that was taken apart piece by piece by a group from our park .
It is 12×20 x 30” high. I added mesquite splines to the aprons for strength.

It is finished with honey oak stain and gloss polyurethane.

Cheers, Jim

Hi Joe, Thanks. No, nothing folds out. It is just a solid table all screwed together. In pic 3 it is laying down on the floor with shadows on it from the deck rails.

Cheers, Jim

Nice Job Jim. At first I thought you turned the legs until I read the info. Way to go.

What’s a park model?

I really like how you shaped the legs. The square nod really stands out!

I’m not sure what a C pap machine is but the table looks great.

Really good as usual Jim.
