Mid Century Modern inspired, this End Table is made from one solid piece of 6/4 Ash (17” wide) and features a “waterfall grain pattern” where the grain ‘flows’ over the edges. The leg set is made from Walnut and is built to last.

At 24”wide x 17” deep x 20” not only does this make a perfect End Table but can also be used for a Nightstand.

Oh wow you have captured the 1950’s look with a more stable base. Most of the 50’s stuff had screw on legs using a bolt with machine threads on one end and wood threads on the other (can’t remember the name of the bolt … Grrr) Hanger bolt??

Any ways, after the kids (us) climbed on it a few times the legs were wobbly and we got whooped. (I was about 8)

Nice job—just my style, and I love the contrast between the two woods. Thanks for sharing.
