This graceful walnut table with cabriole legs and a dovetailed drawer is one
project that will be in your family for generations.
The primary challenge in building this table is making the cabriole legs. So we
have included complete instructions (5 pages, 36 step-by-step drawings) to
carry you through the process. The aprons and legs are joined with traditional mortise and tenon joinery. The
drawer is made with half-blind dovetails.
CONSTRUCTION. We made our Queen Anne End Table
out of solid walnut. Mahogany and cherry would also look good, but you might
want to stain them dark. The overall dimensions are 22" high x 20"
wide x 24" deep.
This project was originally published in Woodsmith No. 43.
