I recently completed this small side table and it has already become a much-appreciated addition to the home. With a table top about 10″ x 18″, it has proven itself to be compact yet stable, and suitably sized to hold a book, or a dinner plate and drinking glass.
Followers of my blog may recognize the top as a slice from the same piece of ash that was used in the doors of Insanity 2.
The form took a while to realize, and I had fun mixing straight lines and convex shapes.
The butternut base is joined with bridle and lap joints, and the teardrop ash top is joined with a pair of floating tenons and a little glue.

Very stylish design and the joints look very sturdy — M&T or Dominoes? Chuck
I read the description at the bottom and now know the joints employed.
Is that a bookmatched resaw I am seeing? Flat sawn? You know I love ash like you do. I am amazed at the grain you managed to reveal in the top. Nice! More of the air dried stuff I assume?
You’re seeing a single piece of ash with no joints. Flatsawn and air-dried.
Great Work, Thank you for sharing information.
