    Small Table

    Been working on this for a couple days. First thing of this type I have ever made. Red Oak and my buddy is going to finish it. Same guy that got the book cases a while back.

    I wrapped the legs so they had the same grain. I also did the tops of the middle stretchers.

    Here is how I attached the top. Didn't really like the figure 8 fasteners.

    Questions comments welcome.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Steve, Nice little table. I will often make some of these to fasten on a top.

    You put one in every corner fastened to the apron. It has to be long enough to clear the legs. They are cut at a 45 then the through hole is for the top.

    I like the mission style, among others. It looks great, but how did you do the joints? No fair just showing the finished pics. You know how we like to see the details.
