I just finished making this Armchair Table for our one recliner that doesn’t have an end-table. We just don’t have the room to add an actual end-table so I figured that something like this might suffice. This is Walnut and Maple that has been finished with a semi-gloss water-based poly.

Super nice Daryl. I like the design and the wood combos. How’d you attach the top and bottom? Thnx in advance

Thanks Roger! I used 1 inch pocket screws and Titebond III to attach the top and bottom. The pocket holes face the side of the chair so you can’t see them which worked out well.

Ahhh. Very good. I’ve been thinking of doing a table similar to this. My couch is close to the door, and a table that slid underneath like this would be ideal.

Very nice. Like the combination of walnut and maple. What did you use for the floor of the glass holder?

BB1, I used a 3 inch forstner bit to make the holeand, which is about an 1/8 inch deep, and then I cut a 3 inch circle of cork that I picked up from Michael’s Arts and Crafts. I used Loctite spray adhesive to apply the cork.

Nice work and wood colour contrast. I like that glass stand insert.
