The seed idea for this instructable came in part from Wholmans fantastic Scrap Table http://www.instructables.com/id/Scrap-Table/.
However I needed to make something that would not look out of place againts the rest of the furniture in my house.
The timber is shop bought (about £120) of oak and black walnut.
I apologise now for the lack of photos of the construction but I have attached a detailed sketchup model and plans for each component.
Have fun and hopefully someone with better carpentry skills than me can do it justice.
Step 1: Understand the design
First have a look at the model ' table complete.skp' and take some time to understand the design. If you have never heard of sketch up it is free modelling software from google. To just view the model simply download sketchup viewer.
and open the file in it. Spin the model round to get a good look at it.
The basis for each component is a 25mm x 30mm section. The real change I made to the design during construction was to cut down the number of threaded rods to 3, however I think in hind sight with a decent set of sash clamps they could be omitted altogether and the top could be just glued.
