Default End Table

I first saw an end table, similar to this, at my accountant's house when I first started business. Many years later, my wife told me that we needed some small serving tables for when we were entertaining. I recalled the end table I had seen, designed something similar, and built it. Wife was happy.
The top drawer is just what it looks like & is handy for storing coasters & things. The bottom 4 pull out & open up to become handy little serving tables.

Great idea! Have you ever used all of the tables at the same time? One for each guest?

Impressive - that you got all the dimensions and build details done so well with a repro project. And such a good memory...

Holy Cow. That is inspired! The length of the table determines the height of the serving table/drawers. Do it would be possible to make taller tables if you wished and house them in a hall table or table behind a sofa. I love it.

Very nice. I'd never have one in my home, because that would imply that I like company. I don't. However, I think it would be great in my camper van - when and if I ever get that far. Still won't want company, but should be great for two people, snacking, and/or having coffee.
