This project evolved over a long time with storing the extra wood and deciding what to do. I purchased a full sheet of 3/4 walnut plywood and built the first table. My wife designed it as she does most of my projects. The requirement was that the table could be stored somewhere when we didn’t want it in front of a sofa. The design or a solid side resulted in it being able to be stood on end at which time it becomes a book case or a side table for hold good next to the dining table. The last picture that I just added shows the table as a bookcase.
Because it didn’t use of the full sheet later the two other side tables were made. The larger of the two is similar to the main table in that it can be used laying down or standing up as shown.
The last circular table was the means of using up the last of the remaining wood. I had success with the triangle table that I showed earlier so went with three legs rather than four. I liked the little triangle bracking feature so that was the reason for the three legs. The curved legs were cut in strips and glued and bent with clamps and a jig. The biggest problem with the circular table was edging the plywood. That I did by gluing a thin strip of solid to it using the waste wood from the circle as a form for holding the strip in place while the glue dried. To do that I built a square frame and used wedges to hold the waste trim in place.
