  1. Federal Tip Top Table

    This is a Federal Tip Top table, reproduced from Michael Dunbar's classic book, Federal Furniture. I like little tables because they are something that I can get a handle around and complete in a couple of weekends. My wife, however, has read the riot act to me and said 'NO MORE SMALL...
  2. Breakfast Table

    I am a new home owner as of nine months ago, which put me in a very strange place. For the last three years of my life I have been a nomad; which, naturally, led to me having very few possessions. I am unmarried, and do not have an eye for decorating. I have developed a deep appreciation for...

  5. two small side tables for my wife

    I had some extra red oak from a project I made for my sister so I made these two small tables to go on either side of our sofa at the request of my wife who grew tired of setting her coffee cup on the floor. The room is quite small so there isn't room for traditional end tables. I made these...

  7. Maple Side Table

    This maple side table was inspired by Norm Abrams bedside table and I set my design and dimensions off of his plans from the book. After watching the video on utube, I made these changes. In the photos I had bought a load of maple strips $15, and so I planned to make each leg an L shape. This...

  9. The Gentleman's Companion

    Of course, when entertaining in the parlor one hopes to keep a refined sense of style and a conservative décor. One seeks traditional, warm, inviting, elegant, and classic furniture with a restrained palette. Then the big game comes on, the monster truck rally starts, the latest punkin chuckin...
  10. Small Table

    This is a small table that I made to go beside my couch so I can lay down and watch tv and keep my drink, popcorn, remote or xbox controller easily accessible. It's a pretty basic 4 leg table design but in my confidence in it's simplicity I caused a lot of little problems. The table top is from...
  11. Small drop leaf table

    I wanted a small table that could serve as a place to put drinks and snacks in front of the fire. The table also had to disappear when we didn't want it out. I decided a drop leaf table was the better choice of style. Then I needed a design. Most of my furniture projects are in the Arts and...
  12. Maple tables from the scrap pile.

    During my earlier woodworking days I lived in Port Angeles, Washington, and there was a saw mill just outside of town that specialized in cutting figured maple and old growth spruce. They would find amazing figured maple and cut it into 8 inch by 24 inch blanks that were 8-quarter thick. Then...

  15. Embracing the chunky

    I seem to have spent a lot of time over the last year or so fighting my tendency to produce what was once described here as "chunky" pieces. Well, I decided, for this piece at least, to give up that fight and just "go with it", or, as someone sagely pointed out to me, to "play to my strength"...
  16. Walnut End Table

    I picked up some walnut shorts at my local supplier in hopes of making something small. I wanted to use my lathe for a project for the 1st time. I turned the legs round but kept the upper 4" square. I have NEVER turned anything useful before. I also wanted the top to be clean and crisp. I...
  17. Small Spalted Cherry Table

    This was a request from my mom. She wanted a small table to sit beside the couch to set a cup of coffee on. I have a fair amount of rough cut cherry which was planed down to 3/4". This gave me a chance to work with the Jessem doweling jig (highly recommended). Since the top and shelf are...

  19. "Missing in action"...

    ... or "Este não está um cinzeiro verde" (this is not a green ashtray) - with apologies to Magritte - this is such a very very long way from the first drawing. I thought this might be a fun thing to make - I need to seriously think, in the future, about those things that amuse me before I spend...
  20. Chip storage / drink table

    This is my first attempt at any kind of table. It is going to be used for holding 4 racks of chips and two sets of drinks in between people at where I play cards. Approx size is 15"x11"x22", cup holders are 6×6 and were an after thought. Might make 1 or two more depending on how this one works...
