Thread: Small end table

    Small end table

    Not sure if I posted this in the right place.

    I am looking to build a small end table. I would like to have 2 shelves. Looking for photos of ones that people have done in the past. Also looking for any plans if possible. It can be 3 legged or 4 legged but can not protrude too much because it will be in a walk path. It will only have some knick-knacks and flowers on it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Ibuilt this one for a client a few months back. Probably smaller than what you are looking for.

    I too like the looks of that. I am probably leaning more to something half round that can sit against a wall. Not sure what they call them. But on a small scale.

    I have not seen a demilune table with a shelf, but I guess there is no reason that it could not have one, but I am not sure how it would look. None of these are mine; the first two are Garrett Hack's and don't remember where I got the picture of the other. Another three weeks from now, I will be building one in a class taught by Garrett.

    For inspiration, I suggest you either google images of small tables or look in books such as Furniture Treasures by Wallace Nutting.
