This is an older project I completed in 2008. It was the first time I ever designed a a piece of furniture using Sketchup. After I completed the Sketchup drawing I decided that If I built one, I could certainly build three at the same time and have some very special Christmas gifts for my Mom and my sister in law. I decided to build the Padauk and Wenge one for myself to put between a pair of leather chairs in my entry parlor. The Mahogany one would be for my mom. and the one in Cherry for my sister in law.

This was also my first attempt at laminating resawn lumber into a curve on a form. I was quite pleased how they all turned out. As time has passed the brightness of the Padauk has mellowed from red orange to red brown. The Cherry one I saw this past summer and it has darkened quite nicely and the reddish hue has become much richer and way more pleasing. The Mahogany one has reddened a bit as well but has the least amount of noticeable change.

The original Sketchup drawing can be downloaded from the 3D Warehouse here:

Very nicely done. I especially like the joinery. Thanks for posting a link to the plans. I need something to put by a couple reading chairs in my entry parlor. This may be what i build.

These tables are wonderful works and not an easy build. Hope you start building in Tennessee soon.
Your talents would be a shame to waste.
I also like your shaker piece.

Thanks James! Your work is also quite spectacular. I’m a big Arts and Crafts fan myself. I’d love to see a 360 degree video of your laundry room.

Very nice. It’s a shame that the Padauk had to change color at all. It is so beautiful in the picture.
Well done.

Yeah I know. Wood moves and Sunlight/UV changes it’s color. I expected it to change and it is still beautiful but I do miss how brightly colored it looked when I first completed it.

If you do decide to build it let me know via PM. I think I have a couple more drawings that might be helpful for constructing the lamination form and cutting the tenons in the curved apron. Also, I did not cut the tapers in the legs until I finished the top and shelf. I made sure that I cut the dado in the legs the correct width for the shelf before cutting the tapers. I also flattened the spot on the shelf that slipped into that dado and used a small dowel in the joint to prevent separation.

The tables are very nice and the finish looks fantastic. I really like the leather chairs with the table.
