One the favorite end tables of mine, built one in high school shop class for my mother. Top is 24” dia and 26” high.
It makes a good lamp table , drop one leaf and it sits closer on one side. Found the plans in popular mechanics back in the 70’s.

Nicely done Doug. I like that is not overly ornate. And the walnut grain looks great.

That is a nice table, we all made one very similar back in shop class, ours had more of a Shaker look to it. Straight tapered legs, and squared/rectangular top and sides. Our lathe was always broken.

Yours has better lines, thanks for posting.

THANK YOU ALL for the nice comments on the walnut drop leaf table, I have also made one with Cherry wood, but the top is figured wood . It also helps with a good selection of lumber to select from. I run the molder for three years for a large company.
