Wood Console Table
Inspired by classic shaker night stands, this deceptively simple design visually transfers the weight from top to the ground with slender, tapered legs. This version is designed for a hallway with three slender drawers. The table is finished with milk paint and oil, then rubbed out with wax to give it a wonderful texture and glow. The maple top glows with a clear lacquer that will allow it to age solidly. On this particular piece a crack developed and a cherry dovetail key was used to hold the top securely.
