A few images of a bedside table I just finished. The table is made from three types of wood: popular boards for the top and thicker side pieces, oak for the thinner sides and slated shelf, and red oak for the legs. All cuts were made on a table saw (except for the slats in the middle, which were glued on and then sawed down to size using a hand saw. I used Titebond III (the green label) wood glue to hold it together and a couple hand planes and fine-grit sandpaper to clean it up. The table was finished with a Minwax Polyacrylic 'Clear Satin' protective coat.
Made a few adjustments, but still turned out great! Thanks for the great idea! Made two of them. :)
Was there not a "how to" on this table before? I like the design and am venturing to do one or two for the house.
Headed down to the workshop to make now. This would look great in the bedrooms. Gonna make 3 sets, Thanks for the idea.
