I wanted to surprise my wife with a small sewing table because she sometimes liked to sew in the living room rather than in her craft room. I didn’t like seeing her struggle with a sewing machine set up on a small TV tray.
The table is made from American Cherry. Unfortunately, I made the skirt and drawer front out of sap-wood (at the time, I did not know what sap wood was – I just thought it unusually grained). I also only put a slight taper on the legs because I was terrified of the tapering jig (I’ve since come to feel more comfortable with it).
I used this project to become familiar with creating my own designs, tapering, bread boards (there are tiny bread boards at each end of the top), drawer construction, and carcass building.
