« Part 2: November 12, 2010 Part 3 of French Fry Friday series Part 4: Murphy bed legs »

Just a reminder French Fri Friday is when I showcase some of the smaller things that often get overlooked. End tables are something that can be sold as in a pair or will even work by itself. One thing that I have learned is that to make one more versatile it is best to design and finish it where it can be view for all sides. With the need for surfaces in the middle if the room, next to a mid-room sofa, most unfinished end table will not work easily. A little planning ahead and a little more time invested, will make it adapt to more areas.

This is an oak end table that I built in October 2005. It has turned legs and multi-level top. The drawer section is split into tow units and the fronts are made from a continuous board. This allows the grain to flow smoothly from one front to the other.

It was a little deeper then most end tables that I build, but it worked well because of how the uppers section broke up that depth.
