This is a small fretwork table I designed and built last night. I intended it to be a flower stand but it ended up being a place for the fretwork church I made a while back. It’s made from hard maple and has some nice figure in places. I forgot how much I hate scrolling hard maple. The stuff cuts like steel.
When I started the project I wanted to make the joinery very simple so my blog readers could attach the legs without having to know how to do mortice and tenon joints or other complex joinery. My readers are scrollers and many of them don’t have much more than a scroll saw to work with. After gluing the legs to the top assembly I used spacers to lock the legs in place (shown in the last picture). It’s a strange way to attach legs but they seem pretty solid and hopefully it’s simple for them to assemble.
