The dear wife wanted to have a few end tables for the living room to put drinks on by the couch while watching the Tigers play. She did not want anyone putting stuff on the new coffee table. So, after pricing them out to be around $100, I went and bought a few common boards at the local box store for about $50 bucks. Took me a couple of weekends but I finished up Saturday. Real easy project, just straight cuts and biscuit glue ups on the tops.

I had one problem with one, the top shifted during gluing and I did not catch it. I think it happened with a closed the door to my shop. So one of the tops is off about 1/4”. I fixed it by sanding it so things looked square but if you look close enough, you can see the top is slightly off square. I will make sure to put more weight and more clamps the next time. I was going to rebuild it, but she said it looked fine to her; I may still rebuild it.

Very nice! A simple and classic design. But she should be rooting for the Royals…not the Tigers…LOL
