A small table, made from reclaimed lumber. oak/ash for the base, and Pine for the top. Using mostly hand tools to build it. One coat of BLO is on it right now. Front legs have two sides tapered, using just hand planes. Stretcher in-between the front and back aprons, sit in hand cut dovetails, one per each end. Corner blocks serve to re-inforce the corners, and provide a way to fasten the top to the base.
Top USED to be an old waterbed side frame. Cut into 36” lengths. The rabbet joint was part of the way waterbed frames sat on their plywood bases. I merely cleaned it up, to make a better glue joint. Top has bevel edges, done with handplanes. Took maybe a week of here and there working on it. Trash bag is full of the shavings and such from the build.
