I just shipped off two side tables to one of my daughters and her family. They’re made of ash and walnut. The ash is in laminated strips, bent to a curve. The tops have a center portion from a walnut log that was rescued from a landfill some years ago. They’re joined between two other less-figured pieces. They are 26 inches high and 15 by 20 inches on the top.
I secured the pieces with round head screws and cap nuts that reveal the structural aspects of the tables. They were designed to serve as dinner trays for watching TV while munching or simply to hold stuff that can be easily moved around in the living room. Getting it right was a challenge. I was pleased with the result, so I thought I’d share it with you.
