My Tapered Frame side table design came to me after working on a timber framing project. I was inspired by the combination of angularity, airiness, and joinery detail in the English style barn frame that I helped cut and erect.
This table is all solid wood. It is open and airy but also has some fine details. The reverse- tapered legs grow slender at their tops. There they are connected by mortise and tenon and pegged through tenon joints to the slender, offset top rails. The top is 5/8″ with bevelled edges to match the outside angle of the leg in relation to the floor.
The lower shelf of the table is composed of two pieces. This serves both a functional and aesthetic purpose. Because the outside corners of the shelf are precisely fit to the legs, the gap between boards provides necessary room for wood expansion and contraction. The gap also gives a simple, clean visual break to the surface.
These handsome tables have been a popular piece for me. Presently, I have one in cerused white oak finish, as pictured, available. These could also be made to order in a variety of other woods.
