I had first seen Kentucky Stick Chairs here in Lumberjocks and decided to build four of them, two each for my grown daughters. Both girls loved them but wanted a matching table. So I designed and built these two tables. One daughter wanted bottom braces and some kind of shelf and the other wanted the bare legs, so that’s what you see. The bottom shelf is not glued so it can be removed.
I thinkthe pieces of maple were the same 1.25×1.5 inches that the stick chairs were. I selected the lengths to be 17 inches, 8 inches, and 4 inches with half inch gaps. The top pieces are ‘floated’ using 3/8” dowels. There is a frame between the legs that helps support the top.
The tables are actually quite sturdy and the spacing does not cause a big glass of wine to be unstable.
