Thread: Two end tables

  1. #1

    Two end tables

    Hi, sharing two end tables completed recently. These are my design, refined over a few mock-up iterations. The goal was something between organic and mid-century modern, maybe a little bit sexy. I could not decide between Cherry and Walnut so made one of each. They relate to a nearby 54" diameter kitchen table of a similar design I completed last year.
    Dimensions: 22 1/2" high, 32" diameter
    Tops are both veneered over a BB substrate circle wrapped with 1 1/8" thick hardwood edging
    Joinery was a combination of a splining machine and a shop made doweling jig.
    Finish: Osmo Polyx. I see some discussion in this forum lately about natural look finishes such as Osmo and Rubio MC. I am very happy with the way the Osmo turned out here. The sheen is very natural, and the tops have a silky feel.

    I included a few zoomed in photos of details like the foot relief and intersection of the components. The structural center has a hand carved hollow. The top edge profile is a very large radius roundover on the underside and a small cove on top where the veneer transitions to the solid wood edge.
    Both tables look very nice in the room where they live. I hope you like them.

    Very nice tables. It would be interesting to see how the leg joints go together.

    Beautiful work! I'd also enjoy seeing how the leg joints go together.

    I always love your projects Edwin. Such beautiful graceful lines, and these are another example of your excellent craftsmanship. Well done.

    Which sheen of PolyOx did you use? If it was satin, how did you get such a lustrous sheen? Just lovely.

    Love the legs, keeps the access all the way round under the table. Elegant.
    Legs look a nightmare to dust……….just kidding!
