Basic End Table
Basic End Table
An important beginner project.
It’s been said there are really just two types of woodworking projects: the box and the table. All projects are just variations on these primary forms. This project is not so much about building an end table (although it is a great little table) but rather about learning the basic techniques that you can use to build any table, any size.
When making furniture out of solid wood it’s important to consider wood movement: the expansion and contraction caused by seasonal changes in humidity. The top of this table is attached using z-clip fasteners which allow for the panel to grow and shrink all it wants without the risk of the wood splitting or buckling.
