Some more Texas theme stuff I make for a local gift shop. The tables are 22” high and the tops are 18” x 18”. Water based stain for the colors. The square table is finished with lacquer and the round table is finished with Thompson Water Seal.

Those are great. You should try making one in the shape of Texas.

That’s a cool idea. Pretty neat. I agree with Salty, you should try it on Texas shape.

j_olsen – FYI : This table is actually the same design as the one in Stevemarin’s blog. The only deference is his is step stool, but you can build this in any dimension you like. Just adjust all the measurement according to the size that you want. I built a table size and bench size already. Here is Stevenmarin’s blog>> http://lumberjocks.com/Stevinmarin/blog/13842

Great idea and they look like they are very sturdy and very attractive. Unique, functional, quality built-I see why they sell well.

Thanks
One in the shape of Texas is a cool ideal, will try that. I make some various size outlines of Texas that are wall hangers, ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/52511) they would work for the top. They are made very similar to the blog posted above. However I do use some fasterners and dowel pins. I made a set of night stands as a special order for a customer that are 32” high and changed the design to get a japanese effect, will post those today. In the process of making bristo height table with stools using this basic design.
