I wanted to share a few more pictures of this table with you. The first pic shows the fleck that I enjoy so much. The second pic shows an addition of two thin pieces of white oak with two cherry knobs that were placed on top of the trough tenons. This was done to cover up the fact that I made the mistake of using a permanent marker to mark the tenons, thinking that I would be able to cut or sand the marks away. When this didn’t work, the challenge was to try and come up with a cover that would hide the mistake, yet add style to the piece. The last pic shows the routed detail on the foot of the table and yes, more fleck from the rived oak with some spalting. Thanks for taking a second look.

Very nice Os. Inovative, imaginative and very cool. If your son don’t want it I’ll take it. I really like the mixture of wood and different ways you’ve used mortise and tenon. I see you used that miller system too. Do you like that. I sure do. buds, mike

I could see having one of these on each side of the couch. Very cool, clever mechanics. I tend to use an “olfa” knife (retractable with blades that snap off to reveal a fresh piece) as much, if not more than a pencil for marking. Much finer point than a sharpie! Not that you didnt do a fine job cleaning that up.

Mike, my son actually likes it, so I’m sorry that I can’t give it to you. I didn’t use the Miller system. I used the beadLock system. I have always been interested in the Miller system, but find the cost of the special dowels more than I want to spend at this time. How about a write up on the Miller system, Mike?

Scott, I keep telling myself that I will start using a scratch awl or the like to mark my lines, but just haven’t done it yet. Your input and kind words are very appreciated.

Thanks Don. I don’t know what happened? They were all completed about the same time, except for the towel holders. I did those months ago. I finally had the time to take the pictures and post them. I was sorry to read that you have exhausted all of your photographed projects. What are we to do?

What a great design. I had seen lamps designed like this but not a table. Thanks for posting.

You’re welcome, woodspar. There is also a plan for a overhead lamp that uses this same design for raising and lowering it.

Great. Like it.
One question: is it height adjustable as seems to be the idea with the tooth and rack feature.
(I have a stock of nice oak given me recently and might just make something similar)

Yes, the height is adjustable! That feature is what attracted me about this design.
