We recently removed the hardwood floor in our half bath and replaced it with tile. It was such nice woo I couldn’t bear to just throw it out, so decided I should make somthing small from it. It did take a lot of machining and glue to get it from flooring to usable size pieces. I used this design because it required several thing that I haven’t done before and used some of my new machines. It is 28” tall, 22” wide and 18” deep. The drawer is 1 1/2 inches deep.
The center was glued up as a hexagon prior to turning. (one of the things i had not done before) I cut the pieces close to the correct angle then trued them on the jointer. It worked well. The drawer has hand cut dovetails which I hadn’t done since my high school woodworking class. And the angles for the top and base worked well on my new sliding miter saw.
All in all a challenging build, but kept me busy and I enjoyed the work.

Nice little table. Pics are so easy to crop and enlarge, I have quit taking them vertically. Too many surprises ;-))
