Cypress & Walnut Triangle Side Table

cypress_1_sombSaying that I LOVE this table would be a HUGE understatement! It makes me smile every time I glance at it while sittin’ in my favorite comfy chair… it is my woodporn! The design came about simply cuz I needed a side table to butt up against a living room wall so that my big chair could be angled towards the TV. I knew I wanted to use the gorgeous 1,000 year-old river-reclaimed cypress scraps that were leftover from a project at my day job as a woodworker & the beautiful walnut came from my favorite lumber yard, AdvantageLumber.com‘s Sarasota Location. Tell ’em Toni sent ya when you visit! ;)

Playing with the sticks for the top was a blast! The grain patterns in this piece are just stunning & the river reclaimed cypress has such a warm glow to it! The top was easy enough to make, just biscuit joining & glueing up MANY sticks, but so very time-consuming. The straight aprons were super easy being as they were just mortise and tenon joints, but the oblique half lap joints of the angled apron took a bit more tweaking. cypress_detail_sombI just played around with angles on the bandsaw until I got it just right, or got very lucky, lol! I also tapered the legs on the bandsaw, which was super fast. Um, what else went into constructing this piece? Oh, the shelf! That added a good couple days to the build considering glue up time & chiseling the tenons (two glued & one loose on the acute side of the triangle), but totally worth it. I slathered on some lacquer & that was about it. Time to put my feet up in my favorite chair & stare at my little table! ;D
