I made this several years ago. It’s based on a plan from Popular Woodworking. Most of my projects end up in my family’s houses (or stuck in limbo in my shop). This one sits next to my sofa.

The wood is cherry and it’s finished with a cherry Danish oil. The aprons and stretchers attach to the legs with mortise and tenons.

Very Nice
You did an excellent job in grain match up on the tabletop.

Very pretty!!! I need a couple like this to help tame the stacks of newspapers and magazines that seem to reproduce while we are asleep.

looks like a great place to put woodworking magazines and all stored in this beautiful piece of furniture you’d be inspired to make something every time you sat down on the couch/sofa

Beautiful work Chelle. Are you making a Thorsen table? You certainly have the know-how. Look forward to seeing more pieces. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks all. I just picked up the lumber for my Thorsen table today. I’m a little concerned about finishing it on time, but I’m going to give it a shot.

Nice job Cheller. It clearly supports a lot of weight so nobody could fairly criticize your joinery!

I can see an Apple brick adapter on the flor, is there a PowerBook close maybe? :o)
