A nice little hand made table from an Oak shelf that was being thrown away, very dirty but a lovely figure(i’m not sure if this type of oak with this figure has a specific name) once planed. The legs and apron are from a fascia board that was painted black and once planed revealed American Southern Yellow Pine.

The oak shelf was flattened with a number 7 Stanley and edge jointed after planing square. The pine was planed to get the paint off and sawn and then jointed to give about 40mm square profile. This then had mortices cut in the legs and tenons in the apron components. The legs were set at 10 degrees off vertical and tapered with a hand plane.

The oak top was given a couple of chamfers at different angles to add a bit of interest and to reduce the bulk at the edges . No power tools were used in this piece .

Very nice table.

Fine wood rescue too!

I like reuse instead of throwing it away!
