Default simple tiny table

To help fill the quiet forum, here is a very simple little table. Some time ago my brother-in-law gave me this "master plan" and asked for it to be as shown, no tapered legs etc.

Nice basic project that can be changed up in many ways. Great set of pictures of the project.

I think the best caption in this set of pictures is "Ready to be handed to brother in law for final sanding and staining"

You have all the fun building the table and he gets all the steps you wish you did not have to do!

Got to say Harry, your brother-in-law draws up plans a lot more detailed than I do.

Nice little table. My plans look like that, when I do draw them. Usually do it of graph paper to get an idea of size and help me draw straight lines.

Some of my stuff just gets a rough sketch, or no sketch, just wing it. My first drink carrier, I had a plastic cup, and that was all I used in designing it, my ruler was just used to draw straight cut lines. I wanted one a bit prettier, so too measurements from the first one, made a rough, really rough, sketch, and added the measurements. And that was it. Think I have a picture of the sketch.

I also rough sketch my cane handle, bank, coat tree hook, designs. Then the ones I decide to make I put on graph paper, so I can detail the designs - these are all done full size, so then I trim them out, glue to plywood, rough cut, then sand to the line. That is the only perfect piece I have to do, then I glue that down, rout around it, and that give a master that will allow me to make copy after copy, all exactly the same. I've got a batch of lined paper spiral notebooks from WallyWorld I use for the rough sketches. The graph paper is conserved for final designs. Love that graph paper.
