The April 2012 issue of Woodworker’s Journal has a plan for a Stickley hall table. The table design looked very good, so I started to build it.

When I had the boards cut out to glue together and make the table top, I called time-out…....because this would be a very big hall table. I then consulted with the big boss (my wife), and she much preferred I scale down the hall table design… an end table design.

Using Google Sketchup, I scaled the design down to a smaller end table size.

I used the Kreg pocket drilling jig and screws to secure the table top, shelf, and mount the legs to the top and shelf. I was able to finish each piece individually, then assemble with no glue using Kreg screws.

I also used Behlan’s grain filler on the red oak table top and shelf….....which gives the mirror finish shown on the photo of the finished table.

To see all of my trials & tribulations of building this Stickley style end table, see my web site.

Great looking Stickley table! I also like that you signed your work—in a hundred years, they’ll know who built it!

My father-in-law was an avid woodworker, making many gifts for the family…........but he never signed and dated his stuff. I plan on my stuff lasting for 100 years….....and make a point to sign and date each item.
