This was a much needed item for my mother in law. There was a blank corner in their bathroom that needed filling and she had a good idea for doing so. We collaborated together to come up with this design.
Construction: This was a few pieces glued up at different lengths to make the triangle. Once the front edge was rounded over, the skirt was attached. The skirt was made using pre-turned legs found at an antique store and the skirt apron was attached to the legs at a 45 miter to allow the legs to fit snugly against the wall. I then took wax and rubbed the piece in a random fashion to prevent the paint from sticking. Once the paint was dry, a thorough sanding was done to remove excess paint and smooth out any imperfections. Then 3 coats of a rub on poly was applied. It is attached to the wall with cleats and pocket screws and the apron is attached with PS too. B/c she lived so far away, I was not able to scribe the table to the wall, so that is why a gap is visible. However, my M-IN-L was very pleased and so was I.
Materials: Pecan (top) and Sugar Pine (legs and apron).

Thanks for looking
