Came across a simple end table design on the internet and thought to myself, “Hey, I could do that pretty easily”.
Had a good time with this build, a lot of new challenges that I had not encountered before. First time doing long tapers, so I screwed some angle guides into my table saw sled (which I had just built for my last project). Also first time using water-based stain. That didn’t go so well, the stain probably works just fine, but next time I’m going to see if I can stain before I assemble so I’m doing all my staining on flat surfaces.
Also, I “cheated” and used pocket holes on this. If I do this again I’m going to have the leg assemblies not over hang the table edges and do a dado joint to hold the two table tops.
Did a google search for ideas and found this: http://www.philtaylorantiques.com/mission-oak-furniture/oak-hexagonal-stand-table/
