This is a simple table which I built for use as a stand for some houseplants which wanted to sit at windowsill height. However, it ended up in a different room for use in supporting a treasure-box listed elsewhere in my projects. It was inspired by numerous oak pieces which passed through my shop for sale or for stripping/restoration. I like the clean, simple lines, a good choice for the rather congested little office/den where it now sits. It was made primarily from salvaged lumber from pallets and crates, my favorite medium to work with, and I let my selected pieces dictate the final dimensions. All the exterior joints are pegged. Below the table is a simple box made with box-joints which were cut on a device I made from a salvaged X-Y axis and linear bearings, with a router located by an indexing lead-screw.
