This Mission style side table was made out of scrap left over from the coffee table and sofa tables that I made previously. ( also posted as a project here) I decided to build this small end table for areas where space was limited. Such as next to the sofa near a walk way as shown in the photo. It all works well next to a over sized chair. It can hold a small lamp or a cup or beverage.
It measures 10 inch x24 inch and is 23 inches tall. it is made our of red oak scrapes. The legs are 1 1/2 square and can either be made from 6/4 or two pieces of scrap glued up.
The top has a band( frame) around the perimeter. This can be made anyway you like.
All the joints are mortise and tenon and are glued.
The reason I call it the “oops” table is it looks like a mistake was made because usually end tables were larger than this. I purposely wanted mine smaller.
his project is very simple and can be built in less than half a day. Even if your buddies are over in your shop checking out your new tools and drinking all of your coffee.
It is finished with the 12 step mission process.
