Simple little table. Top was made as a glue up of two boards, from cutting a 1×10 into two 24” long blanks, tried to get the grain to book-match. Legs were ripped to size from a scrap of 2×10, and are 25” long, tapered on two inside faces, and have a bead down the outside corner. Aprons were cut from a pair of 1×4 x 4’ pine boards..cutting cut the worst of the knots. Aprons were cut to 3” width, and have a bead detail along the bottom edge. Joined to the legs with Mortise and Tenon joints, backed up by the corner blocks.

Cove detail was routed around the top’s edges, after the rounded corners were done.
About 75% hand tool work. Finish is a coat of Golden Oak stain, and a single coat of Gloss Poly.

Norm Abram could have done this table in an afternoon show…I work a tad slower…
Thanks for looking in..

Hey Bandit, hows it going up North.

Nice looking table. Maybe it’s glare off the poly but almost looks like you buried the better show face on the top. That single bottom view has some visual interest.

Thanks for posting.

The bottom is the bottom for a reason….all it did was tearout…badly..other side behaved itself, so it became the top.

Thunderstorms right now..there be a creek running across the shop floor,,good thing I brought the table upstairs…

Very elegant in its simple lines. Mom would call it ‘tailored’. Tearout sucks! Thanks for sharing.
