Project Information

Came across a simple end table design on the internet and thought to myself, "Hey, I could do that pretty easily".

Had a good time with this build, a lot of new challenges that I had not encountered before. First time doing long tapers, so I screwed some angle guides into my table saw sled (which I had just built for my last project). Also first time using water-based stain. That didn't go so well, the stain probably works just fine, but next time I'm going to see if I can stain before I assemble so I'm doing all my staining on flat surfaces.

Also, I "cheated" and used pocket holes on this. If I do this again I'm going to have the leg assemblies not over hang the table edges and do a dado joint to hold the two table tops.

Did a google search for ideas and found this: http://www.philtaylorantiques.com/mission-oak-furniture/oak-hexagonal-stand-table/

Great table. Thanks for the in process pictures. It is nice to see how some of the parts are made. Don't you just love using a sled??

Cheers, Jim

Very Nice Work Indeed! Thanks For Sharing!

I did a "Wall Niche" using Water Based Stain. Will Never Use It Again! It hides The Grain! Oil Base Stain ONLY From now on.
