I had the legs for this one built some time ago, I was kind of fooling around with the doweling jig and came up with this 3 leg design in Oak. All doweled together.

The top is laminated Walnut and Maple, one small patch of maple shows ambrosia beetle streak. All trimmed with a router flush cut bit and 1/4 round over. The round corners cut with a router bit and ply template.

Anyways, a nice little side table to go with my recently finished 3 species stools. It kind of makes it a 3 piece set.

A few construction pics attached.
Thanks for viewing.

Regards
Anthony

Brilliant work there Anthony.
Its certainly a very attractive design.

I will be interested to see who asks how you obtained overall flatness.

Thanks Rob, for the compliments.
and yes as per our conversation,
I kept working the face flat. I hand plane the edges of each board to marry together to joining piece. I doweled the first full face of 1/2 inch boards together one by one with 1/4 inch dowels, As I glue up i,m making sure not to clamp to hard so as not to get a buckle.
Also I kept clamping down onto my known flat ply bench. Glue up was done over 4 days, piece by piece . Hit it with a smoothing plane and seemed to work out nice and flat. Also, I initially with 80 grit hand sand with a nice long flat piece of wood.

Below a few pics of various stages of the glue up

Cheers Dick,
Yes I was a little Hasty with using the ceiling as a prop, I should have put a flat piece against the ceiling first, I damaged the plasta actually. Lovie kind of waived a finger at me to point out I was being a little naughty. I told her its all in the name of craftsmanship.
Thanks Dick for taking a look.
Regards
Anthony

Very interesting design. When I saw the first pic on my phone, ithe bottom joint kind of reminds me of the 3 musketeers handshake, all for one and one for all! Definitely a very unique table!

Cheers Steve for the comment,
Mate as I,ve said before, Im not sure if i get off more on the design and concept of these pieces rather than the woodworking and the execution itself. The woodworking is like going through the motions to get my original thought process presented as a tangible item. Not sure if that makes sense even to me.

Thanks for looking in
Regards
Anthony

EDIT Also I like endgrain

I can believe it. I’m personally not good at design. I always tell my wife to find something on pinterest or pottery barn she likes and I can copy it. I can tweak it from there but I need something to work from. I guess thats why CNC is popular, people can come up with a design, load the design in a machine and let the machine do most of the work.

Great looking table and beautifully designed also Anthony! I also like those great looking stools. A very nice set indeed!
Nice thinking using the ceiling to help; Just hope it’s ok and your not in the dog house for long!

Nice and compact too by the looks of them. Nice table, and chairs.

Those ceiling clamps were the best.

I love it Anthony. I am a real fan of doweling and use it a lot too. It keeps the parts right where you want them and you can dry assemble accurately to try out the assembly!!

Cheers, Jim
