I needed a small end table for my side of the bed. This is what i ended up with. This project is mostly made of curly maple, the drawer is cedar, and the handle is walnut sent to me from fellow LJ cplant. The finish is rubbed poly. The legs are a bent lamination. The box and drawer are hand cut dovetails. Box is sculpted with a grinder.

Very unique design. I get the impression (perhaps) mistaken that it would be easy to accidentally knock it over. I’m not used to seeing a curvy tripod support on a square table. I think the look is really cool, though.

I thought I saw four legs by its shadow? It certainly is an unique one-of-a-kind design, Jwrenc ; very well done. Curly (or tiger, fiddle-back) maple is my most favorite wood next to quilted maple. . . trouble is they are getting harder and harder to find!

very cool. beautiful wood. I like the curves and design but I’m with Paul. Looks like it has 4 legs in the first two pics but only 3 in the rest.
