Black Walnut and Maple Side Table


This project began life as a Google Sketchup drawing.  It was the first time I used Sketchup to design a piece of furniture.


Milled up apron and leg stock

I like to use contrasting woods on my projects,  so I picked black walnut for the table aprons, hard maple for the profiled legs, and soft maple for the round top.  I created templates from 1/4 in MDF  for the round top and legs.  I used those templates to cut the pieces final shape on the router table after rough cutting on the bandsaw.
