First of all, I’d just like to wish you a Happy New Year!
I made three bedside tables, a while ago now. For my first post of the year, I thought you may like to see them in as works in progress from start to finish.
Two of them are solid Mahogany with veneered tops and one is solid Oak with a veneered top.
The two mahogany ones were for our home and the oak one was for my parents.
First things first, cutting the wood for the legs and frame to size
Marking out the joints
Cutting out the slots to join them together with
And here they are cut out. If you look carefully, you can just make out my little table design drawing.
The frame and legs with the joints cut. These parts are ready to be put together now
Attaching the edges of the table top
And the frames are now ready to be assembled
And here they are…
All they need now is the finishing touches. Staining or oiling.
These are the mahogany tables (sorry for the bad photo on this one)
This is the oak table, the photo is one’s a bit better 🙂
Here’s a closer look at the shelf on the oak table
And a view from the side of the oak table
