Project Information

Solid maple side table. Unpretentious top with breadboard ends. The tiny pieces joining the upper and lower aprons are tenoned to fit into matching mortises in the aprons. Legs are tapered on their inside faces and end with a spade foot. Finish is brushed nitrocellulose lacquer over aniline dye. 36" wide x 15" deep x 30" high. This table is heavily inspired from a piece by Hank Gilpin featured in Fine Woodworking magazine #171

I really like the style and proportions of that table. It's simple but elegant. I like simple, but the legs and skirt here add a very nice light interesting detail. Very nice! Oh, could you tell us the dimensions of the table? Thanks!

As requested I added the table dimensions to the description. As for the tapers, I did them with a jig saw, starting ~4 inches from the top of the leg and stopping where the foot start. I also initially shaped the foot with a jig saw. Left a lot of waste so I could fine tune the final shape with hand tools (plane, rasps, files, sand paper)

Nice looking table. The feet remind me of a ballet dancer on point.

I know it's already been said several times, but the first impression I had was "hey, a ballet dancer". The feet are a really nice touch to a really nice table.

Seems everyone likes the feet. I wish I could take the credit for the idea but it came from a piece by Hank Gilpin as mentioned in the description.
