The plans for these ‘Little Tables’ appeared in the American Woodworker (Issue #150 October/November 2010).
They are 18 1/2” high, and the top is 9” x 14”. The plan calls for them to be made from 3/4” thick material, and each table takes a board a little under 6’ in length. I think the idea is you can buy a 1×10 x 6’ at the big box for each one. I bought shrink-wrapped S4S oak, which didn’t go all that well when it was time to finish (see: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/21255 ).
Hindsight being 20/20, I wish I would have waited until I had time to round up some 4/4 and mill it myself … just proves that haste makes waste.
Despite the finishing problem, these were fun to build, only took a few hours to cut and do the joinery, and I made a set of templates so if I need more of them in the future, I should be able to knock them off pretty easily.
