We scaled down the size of a large, traditional-style sideboard
to create a compact table that fits nicely in smaller homes. Plan features mortise
and tenon joinery and solid wood construction throughout.
We used white oak to capture the distinctive style of Craftsman furniture, and
we'll show you a simple technique to get the distinctive rays and flecks of quartersawn
grain. Cherry would also be a nice choice. We’ve also included a table saw
technique for cutting the twin tenons on the front rail. This woodworking plan
appeared in Woodsmith magazine No. 163.
