This little cherry piece matches the rest of the bedroom and provides a place to set the humidifier and fan. They will switch places with the season. The design is my own.

Material: The top is 5/4 curly cherry. The legs are from 6/4 cherry cut to make a flare. The lower shelf is 4/4.

Joinery: The joints are mortise and tenon with 3/16 drawbore birch dowel. You can see use of pocket screws to “float” the bottom shelf.

Defects: Unfortunately when I planed the bottom shelf I exposed some new growth. Oh well. Every project has a defect somewhere. Can’t show up the great maker! The grain of the bottom shelf runs opposite the top. OK that’s two. I just realized I can spin the square top 90 degrees! Later.

Special tools: The legs have a bead detail I made with some scratch stock.

I rubbed on two coats of satin poly – water protection needed.

My wife just loves it.

Wonderful and well made table! Great design, like the legs and the curly maple. Great job!
