no previous part Part 1 of Craftsman Side Table series Part 2: Milling the Cherry and Leg Mortises »

Working on a Craftsman side table for the living room. I started with a design I purchased from Woodsmith magazine, and redrew it in Sketchup to change a few things. The original design was narrower, had side spindles instead of slats, and a smaller drawer. I am making it out of cherry, and I’m thinking of using walnut for the top, and maybe the drawer front. The drawers will be maple with a plywood bottom. I have purchased the cherry wood, and now to get started!

Sounds like it will be very colorful.
