Despite not really having much room in the house for yet another table; from the moment I clapped eyes on this handsome little side table, I couldn’t resist having a go at making one. Its diminutive proportions (29-1/2″ [75 cm] high, 21″ [53.3 cm] wide and 15-1/2″ [39.4 cm] deep) should make it possible to find it a living space.
The four cabriole legs define the corners of the deal carcase which is mortised, tenoned and dovetailed together. The carcase accommodates one long drawer above two short drawers. The whole is veneered with walnut – the top with quartered veneers. The drawer fronts and top are feather-banded in walnut and the top is further embellished with crossbanding, a 1/4″ ovolo-bead moulding and re-entrant front corners.
