Small Cherry Table
Build Details

I finished this project December 2002.

The plans were copied from a bedside table project by Rob Stokes of Sumner Washington.

Finished Product

Lumber used was 4/4 cherry purchased from Coloco in Nashville Tennessee.   Dimensions at 23" wide, 16" deep and 26" tall.   The wood was sanded to 400 grit.   Then five coats of Minwax Tung Oil Finish was wiped on.   I do not believe that this is pure Tung oil.   Then followed by 1200 grit lubricated with mineral spirits.   Then waxed with Johnson's Paste Wax using 0000 steel wool.

Table Top

The top was made of three boards (23 x 16).   Two pieces (2 x 17 3/4) were glued on under as spacers for the legs.

Table Legs Clear

The uprights were tenon joined to the top header and feet.   The feet were 13 x 3, the header was 2 x 14, and the sides were 2 1/2 x 22, including a total of 2 inches for the tenons.

Table Self

The shelf was 10 x 20.   But due to a shortage of good wood I shortened the span between the legs by 1 inch.

Table self Attaching Details Clear

The shelves are fastened by 10 ° wedges.   I used 10 ° instead of the 5-6 ° locking wedge so that there would be some give if the table was bumped.   I do not still know if this was the right way to go.   The inside of the hole was tapered to the wedge to prevent pressure at only the top.   The shelf attaching points were originally to be solid.   But due to a shortage and miscalculation the end caps were screwed on.   I think that is a better way to do it.   But the screws need to be plugged.   This would required a little larger area than I used.
