Saw a very cool end table on this site (Thanks Jeff G.!) so I decided to see if I could make one. This table is made out of leftover cabinet scraps and the legs are throw a-ways from a milling plant. The legs are all twisted and are actually perfectly square. Legs are held together by hard wood dowels.
Most of the wood is hickory with some maple and cherry.
Just don’t spill a drink!

Love it :)

I just have to make more stuff so I have enough scraps left over for a project like that.

That turned out very cool. I like the gaps in the top from the staggered dados.

Using a band clamp – great idea.
I made a jig that looked like a picture frame with a plywood bottom and assembled it upside down. Two adjacent frame sides were tightened like cauls to help line up all the pieces.
and thanks for the shout out.
