Has anyone ever made a nice long modern slender hall table with tapered legs possibly? Anything you have made or seen like this let me know as I want to make one for my son.Alistair

Here is mine…
http://lumberjocks.com/projects/10483

Our entry is at the top of the stairs and I didn’t want the hall table sticking out so far as to constantly be getting bumped. Worst case would be my daughter who’s head is about corner level. So I opted for 48×11 for the top dimensions. In the end I didn’t taper the legs just to maintain consistency with the straight edges of the picture window above it. Very simple table in design and construction.

The temptation is to find a nice board and bookmatch it back
upon itself in some way to make the top. If you don’t get enough
width however you’ll wind up with the legs too close together and
the table will be tippy unless attached to a wall.

A table like this is a fun quick project that can showcase a few
excellent pieces of wood. I tend to just bandsaw the tapers on
the legs and plane them smooth by hand. On a run of just one
table it’s plenty quick to do it that way.
