built these under contract per designers sketches and wood sample. Decided to make the jigs and used dowel joinery to attach all the aprons and stretchers rather than using the mortiser and cutting tenons. If I had it to do over again, I think i would stick with the mortise and tenons. finished with danish oil. Sofa tables measure 15w x 60” L x 34” h. drink tables are 22” h x 20” on the long side.

I don’t think I have ever seen side tables like that. What method did you use to attach the cross pattern in the sofa table?

I really like the look of these. Kind of an elegant rustic. Very nice!
