Veneered Accent Table
The beautifully veneered top and shelf, as well as the tasteful details, combine to give this small table a very big impact.
At its simplest, building a small table involves nothing more than joining four legs to apron rails and then adding a top. But as you can clearly see, the construction of this attractive accent table is anything but a run-of-the-mill job. The mortise and tenon frame of the table is really pretty standard — four tapered legs and a “beaded” apron. Making and adding the pattern veneered top and shelf is where the interesting and fun challenge lies. The top and shelf also add a slight twist to the construction. The shelf is captured in notches in the legs during the frame assembly. This means that the shelf has to be completed and fit before the frame can be glued up.

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.
