This end table measures 20” x 20” x 27” tall. Made from strips of oak, cherry, maple and walnut.
I started by gluing up the end table similar to making a regular cutting board, but added two dowels to help with alignment and strength and just centered the pieces while clamping so the ends of each strip are symmetrical on the sides after the miter cut. To plane the top smooth, I made two of the strips equal heights and placed them near the edges which stabilized it while going through the planer. Next I added the 2”x2”x6’ edge oak pieces (legs) with biscuits and glue. Next I built a simple table saw sled to help cut the miters because the piece was large and awkward to move around. I used glue and four 3” screws on each miter to join them together then plugged the holes. The last step was to add the bottom shelf and finish it with three coats of ploy.
