This table was built for our booth to be sold. It sold an hour after we put it in there, I thought I would have a little time between projects but that’s just fine.

Easy to see why it sold so fast – truly a classic design & well executed.

Great build!

I bought balusters and cut one end off for a table or two. Sure beats trying to make four identical legs on the lathe, and a lot cheaper. I found a store going out of business and bought the lot for 75 cents each.

The table with the single visible drawer—does it also have drawers at each end? What joinery did you choose for attaching legs to aprons? Whish method to attach the top to the aprons and/or legs?

No it doesn’t have drawers at each end and I used pocket hole joinery for the table top and legs.

I like pocket hole joinery, too. But one #20 biscuit between two pocket holes is helpful, too.
