Default A side table for the stove

In 2010 we bought this magnificent stove. It is Spanish, made with the old (pre WW2) molds and burns wood for heat, and can be used for cooking in the oven or on the top as well . It is not in the kitchen (not wise to have a big fire just for cooking in such a hot climate), but during the 3 - 4 cold months it makes a nice cozy atmosphere, implemented by the smell and sounds of food cooking. A side table was needed, as the one initially placed (as in the photo) was not taking the heat well and the tablecloth was in danger as well.

I decided butcher-block style, thick on top, with just one drawer and 2 shelves. The wife insisted that I use free edge cypress blocks that had been hanging around for at least 10 years, and so "free edge furniture" got in my life.

It is made of cypress only, sides with 22mm boards, back with 12mm boards - solid wood, dowels all over (no metal used in the joinery) and with particular attention to the decorative use of the free edges.

It exceeded my expectations, as 5 years next to the fire, it is really warm to touch when the stove is on. You can see it in "full steam"during Christmas Eve 2013.

I think it is pleasant, fits in style with the stove, and will last for many years. I posted here as a means of saying "thank you" to all those who gave me wishes for my birthday.

Very nice. I like it.

When my time comes, I want to die like my grandfather did - quietly, and in his sleep - not kicking and screaming like the passengers in his car.

A very nice job Dimitri and it looks perfect sitting next to that stove.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
