Mission End Tables

I’ve decided that the best fit for the space between the chair and couch would be an oval table. The furniture that I’ve already started for the basement is Mission style. So here is the design I came up with for the first one. I’m thinking square for the second. Here are some close ups of the skirt. I cut kerfs about every 3/16″ and left about 5/64 of material The tables support was built for two purposes. 1) To support the skirt and give plenty of glue surface. 2) To give support to the legs. Here is a close up of the lower support. I did a through mortise joint for each leg. The outer edges of the tenon have a chamfer around them. I finally got around to working on my end tables again. The first one is an oval shaped table. It’s my first try at bending curves (for the table skirts). Just have some sanding left before stain and varnish.  Share
