a simple Table
Another table style i like to make, this one a Shaker Style table. About 24"x 24" top, a small, simple drawer, and some hand tapered legs. The drawer does not even use dovetails (too small) so just some rabbets are used. Aprons are joined to the legs with simple Mortise and tenon joints. Inside the aprons, a pair of kickers are at the top of the aprons. These also are where the the top gets fastened in place. On some of these tables I make, a single screw (covered with a plug) will hold the top in pace. Ah yes, pictures!
Ah, the glue-ups. I use the tablesaw as my "bench". The clamp going diagonally is to square the assembly up. On this table, there is no kickers being used, the top is the kicker. The thin apron is where the drawer goes in, drawer "guides" just 1x2s, screwed to the inside of the apron) are next to go in.
Ugly, ain't they? Just an old pine "Loft Bed" that my son had outgrown. Reclaim, reuse, and recycle. Not too bad?
