This is a reproduction of an antique end table my parents have had in their home for over 60 years. Made of red oak.
4th picture shows frame of table Does anyone know if there is a particular name for this style of table?
It is finished with Sam Maloof recipe oil and wax.

One goes back to Dad and one stays with me.

I have no idea what style this is – but I know I like it. Great job! I’m not a big oak fan but, for some reason, oak seems right for this table.

Looks very nice. I agree on the oak comment fitting it.

Nice lines, great proportions. And you can never go wrong with red oak! If I can dig out my reprints of old Sears and Montgomery wards catalogs, I’ll see what name they were given by those retailers. Definitely a popular design from 70-80 years ago. The term ‘occaisional tables’ comes to mind. Thanks for posting! update: According to “Larken” catalogs, (They manufactured furniture for redemption of coupons!) the generic term they used to describe tables of this type was simply “Parlour Tables”. Larkin furniture catalogs from the early 20th Century are a treasure trove of ideas, especially if you like oak!
