We’ve created some nice pdf files that will assist you in building the Creole Table featured in the February 2007 issue of Popular Woodworking. These are the same working files I used to make the table.
Also, we’ve posted an eDrawing of the Creole Table that we think you’ll also find helpful , or at least amusing to fiddle with. Click here to read about the eDrawing and download it. All of the files below are pdfs and can be viewed using the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. Simply print them out, tape them together and you’ll be ready to cut the cabriole legs and the scrolled apron.
One caution: Before you print these out, make sure that your computer is not set to shrink images to fit on your printer’s paper. Many computers do this automatically and it will slightly shrink all of the drawings and the parts will be the wrong size. We promise, these illustrations are the correct size. If they print too small, the problem is in your computer.
If your computer is shrinking these illustrations, you can fix it usually by unclicking a “Shrink to Fit” box in your printing dialog box. If you’re struggling with this problem, do what I do: Ask an 11-year-old for help.
