Tip & Turn Table
Why not choose a project with some history? The tip and turn table is a great woodworking challenge and a surefire conversation starter.
When you see this table for the first time, it's hard to know where to focus your attention. Between the figured veneer of the top, the graceful curves of the legs, and the six-sided column, there are plenty of things to catch your eye. But the most interesting feature is one that you don't notice right away. Under the top of the table, you'll find a small, box-like assembly called a "birdcage". And it's this birdcage that makes the table really special — it allows the top of the table to both tip and turn.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
