We needed an end table to go between the two settles in the living room. My wife wanted to have storage for holding throw pillows and blankets. This is the design that I came up with. It is a scaled up version of a set of night tables that I built a few years ago (without the drawer). The table stands 29” h and the top measures 27” x 27”. The cabinet portion is 24”w x 24” d x 28.25” h The construction is a commbination of mortise and tenon and stub tenons. The panels are 0.5” QSWO plywood f and solid QSWO for the top, legs and frame (photo 5). The bottom is held in place with cleats and pocket hole screws (photo 6). The bottom rails are arched to give the piece some lightness. The doors use stub tenons. The interior is finished with clear satin Arm-R-Seal. The stain is General Finishes Candelite and the topcoat is satin Arm-R-Seal and clear Briwax.
