When the little one was born a few months ago we needed a quick and functional side table to put books, tissues, drinks, and other items for a new baby and her mommy. I wanted to do something more elaborate but I successfully edited myself and went with Red Oak that I had on hand and biscuit joints on the legs.
The design is based on a free I Can Do That (ICDT) project available from Popular Woodworking – those folks are the best! I stayed pretty true to the construction philosophy from the article because I was focusing on fast for this project. From start to finish it took me less than two weeks and that’s while holding down a full time job and having a brand new baby.
I normally hate oak but this turned out alright with some dark General Finishes dye and stain combination. All members of the family are happy with this and it’s outcome has been perfect. I recommend trying something like this.
