This table is a simplified version of an earlier project – A Linen fold Oak cabinet . This one is a bit larger and incorporates mortise and tenon, hand-cut dovetails and bread board ends on the table top to prevent the wide oak from cupping and twisting. Although it looks like a 3 drawer cabinet it really is a shallow drawer on top and a deep faux double drawer below.( to hold larger items like sanding belts and sanding spindles ). originally it was on casters so I could roll it around the shop, however my wife decided she wanted it in the entry hall so alas, I am now building a duplicate to hold my Ridgid sander and a grinder.
The parchment fold is less ornate than the linen fold

Yeah , the orientation sucks. But the project looks really nice. It’s something I might need to copy. It’s got a real classy looking design.

Thanks. I struggle with computers but love the smell of sawdust!

Thanks Burly Bob for re-orienting the pictures so the cabinet is no longer on it’s side. I am a bit of a techo-dinosaur

That’s 1000X better than my Baltic birch shop “furniture”, and more so for the rest that’s just 2 X 3s and DF plywood. If I had a real shop space, I’d like to do something like this beauty. Well done!

Thanks Dark Lightning . My kids are all into big box Swedish products so if I want to try solid wood stuff I have to use my shop as the guinea pig. Nothing wrong with plywood – “A place for everything and everything in it’s place ,including sawdust”
