I found this table buried in the boneyard when I was cleaning up. It’s got a 20” diameter poplar top with a red oak base. I’ve got the top attached with eight figure 8 fasteners and it is 31” high. I made it in august of 2008 and it survived two floods and the extremes of the cellar boneyard for 5 years. I had made 6 six of these (all different) and I thought my daughters had taken them all. I brought it upstairs and I’ll find a use for it.

The top almost looks like a mountain vista. Was that intentional or did the wood grain just turn out that way. (Sorry if that was a dumb question.) I think it is really attractive.

I found it to be very attractive too – it was intentional. In fact the brown streaks were purple-ish but once the sun hit it, it turned brown.

Very nice design.
I’d like a couple of these rather than traditional end tables that seem to get filled with junk.

Added to faves. :-)

Your’re right on that. It’s very hard to “clutter” this up. It’s also why I didn’t put a second shelf on the lower stretchers.

Pretty round table, well crafted and the top displays a very unique landscape pattern. Great job!

They are easy to make – by hand or with machines. The tops, because they are round, make good use of odd sized boards.
