This table was made for a former co-worker that I have done several past projects for as well. he seems to like my work.
He asked that a small side table be made for his bedroom, where he could have some storage space under the lid. He gave me some dimensions and left the wood choices with me. The past projects I have done for him have all been maple, including curly maple, and so I decided to use that again. I also had this sigle bubinga board in my wood collection that I had but but didn’t use for a different project.
This table is 40” long, 11 3/4” wide, and 23” tall. The inside space is 3” deep. It is a fairly straight forward design. I incorporated a taper to the bottom third of the two inside edges of each leg. The legs are all cut from a single piece of wood. The customer wanted the top to lock securely, and so that the lock didn’t stick out sorely, I decided to add some bubinga inlayed around it. The finish on this table is numerous coats of wipe on gloss poly, sanded in to help fill the open grain of the quarter sawn bubinga.
Thanks for looking.
