Sometimes I find a piece of wood that I can’t turn into a box or a cutting board. This piece of Lacewood was just too nice! I glued up two pieces for the top, added a little edge treatment with the router. The apron is Lacewood. The legs were glued up from some Peruvian Walnut and Purpleheart. Then I turned them on the lathe. It is put together with mortise and tenon joinery. The top attaches with some wood blocks that have a lip that goes into a groove in the apron. It is 22” square on the top and 22” tall. The couch looked unbalanced, so I made another table. This one has a top of Lyptus with legs of Purpleheart and Yellowheart. I got smart and used some of the figure 8 metal washers to attach the top. Much easier. I used Tung Oil finish on these. Thanks for looking. And Yes, I need to paint my porch- Again! Darn snow and ice!!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Those are some very nice tables. The woods work well together.

Brilliant! It looks so awesome.If you’re looking for additional surface area in your home, or if you want to accentuate your lighting or add to your decor, an end table is what you need.With end tables, you get a great place to set down items, plus, they add a nice decorative element to your space as well.
