I made this table for an entrance to my house. A perfect place to set keys, coffey, mail, etc. I have made multiple versions of this table featuring different edges, wood species, leg heights and even a 3 tier version. There really isn’t much to this piece. I used tight fitting dowels to attach the legs. One unique feature I added was that the entire front edge of the top and shelf is face grain. I have seen many versions of this table but they all had endgrain facing the front. Any comments or questions would be appreciated.

Very nice project. What finish did you use to get the high-gloss effect?

Hi Jason, thanks for the complement. I used an outdoor finish. It is Minwax’s, Helman, Spar Urathane
(gloss). It was the wrong type of finish for where the project was going but I like how easy it is to clean and the look it gives the project.

Hello, jack. Thanks. I thought I would try something new, so I used some black, gloss, varathane and finished them before assembly. Then once assembeled I finished the table and shelf. I didn’t really get the face grain on the fron edge, I guess I was typing faster then I was thinking. I just assembeled the tops and shelves so that the end grains were facing the back of the table. ( at the 90) I then cut the convex curve all through one piece of the top and shelf. So you do see end grain along the front but because I didn,t stain or dye these projects it doesn’t show that much.
