Yet another hall table from leftovers and castoffs….

Here is a photo spread from start to finish

Picked up some used spindles at the ReStore and sliced off the ends to get my legs.

Milled a few strips of beaded edge banding to apply to some plywood scraps for the apron.

Then I cut the aprons to size and attached the end aprons to the legs followed by the back apron using pocket hole screws.

For the front apron I cut out the openings for the drawers on the table saw by raising the blade through the plywood and then I applied some home made beading to the openings to dress them up a bit.

I then attached the front apron to the Legs.

Installed some simple drawer guides.

Built two simple drawers from some leftover pine boards.

Addeded an MDF top and a couple of Drawer fronts made from some pine boards and painted it with chalk paint toped with paste wax.

There you have it… a quick little weekend project.

Thanks for looking!

Nice work with the table, and good idea with the spindles. Table looks real good.

Thanks everyone….

Gshepherd- all of the pocket holes are on the underside of the table so there was no need to fill them.
