This is a prototype of a new triangular end table design. I made the prototype using plywood so that I could check the dimensions and get a better idea of what the table will look like. I plan to make the final table out of mahogany with three hummingbird inlays on the top.

that is nice and in mahogany it will be outstanding – really like the joinery, impressive

Nice Roger. My daughter needs a triangular table in her living room. Plywood prototype is a good idea

I can see the finger joints holding the top and legs together, but not sure, do I see another layer under the lower shelf w/ dowels?

Really like the design, and good idea using ply to figure it out.

Great job!, never would have guessed this was made out of plywood, details and proportions are great. Beautiful craftsmanship. And the table looks good too. LOL

Thanks for all the feedback.

I kind of ‘cheated’ on the lower shelf – a simple screw in each leg and a wooden plug to cover the screw. I’m not sure how I will attach the shelf on the mahogany table.

We are in the middle of a snow storm here in Upstate New York. End of the week I’m headed for warmer weather and will start on the final table when I get back.
