    That looks really lovely

    Thanks for this terrific new project, Paul. I was just wondering if I wanted to put two drawers in instead of one, would this compromise the strength of the front panel too much, necessitating a different construction?

      Hi Andrew,

      I asked your question to Paul and his answer is below:

      No, you can use the same method, however there are different problems that might occur and you have to work out what they are.

      Kind Regards,
      Izzy

    Hi Paul and Crew-

    Exactly what I was looking to do. Only my table will have a granite top I have had in the shop for about 8 years.

    Thank you.

    I wish you had started this project 3 weeks ago. I’m just finishing a coffee table and I like the legs of this one much better for the size of the table.

    Well, I’ll just have to build another one. I do need some small table around the house.

    Side note: I so much want to make that chess board you did awhile back, but still don’t feel I have the ability yet. I thought that would have been an easy project until I watched you make it. Perhaps I will try it and put it in this table design.

    This looks like just the project I was looking for as an office computer desk/ office work area if it can be sized up to be about 25% wider. Is that structurally within the limits of the plans? Please comment on that during the course.
    Thanks.

      Hi Michael,

      Paul says:
      Yes, you can adjust the measurements to suit your needs.

      Kind Regards,

      Hi Michael,

      I’m sorry to hear this, are you still having problems watching the video?

    Love these furniture projects. This one looks particularly nice.

    Nice project, but what makes something a console table? I looked it up and got something about a table supported by consoles which are supposed to be ornamented brackets with scrolls or corbels. But that is not what Paul is making here. I know other uses of “console,” e.g., the big cabinets that they put around televisions and radios when I was young, but that does not seem to apply to this case either. not important, but I am curious.

    • Selva on 22 June 2019 at 10:02 pm

      In most stores here (Canada) a console table is a hallway/entryway table meant to be set against a wall in a hallway, or, sometimes, a sofa table. Probably ornamented in olden days, but I see the word used more in relation to function (i.e. used as an accent table) rather than form.

      • sanford on 22 June 2019 at 10:09 pm

        Thanks Selva! I guess the pictures I saw when I did a search fit that explanation pretty well. This suggests that at least some of the original meaning (consoles as involving corbels etc) got left behind at some point.

    Great project! When does it start?

    • RODNEY MAGEE on 24 June 2019 at 12:38 pm

      Paul, the table is very nice, clean design. I have one question if I may; the taper on top of the edge of the table, I’ve seen the taper or bevel on the bottom, usually to lighten the look of the top. I find it eye catching and compelling. I don’t remember seeing it before.

      • Greg Jones on 24 June 2019 at 1:20 pm

        It’s a very nice look, however… I built a desk for my wife several years ago with a beveled edge like that. I was looking for a ‘ramp’ for her arms when resting from the keyboard. Works fine for that, but the downside is that anything inadvertently placed on the bevel ends up on the floor.

      Hi Giorgio,

      The first episode will be released on Wednesday.

    I’ve been working the last few days on the small table that you built. I’m almost ready for t he glue up and now I can’t wait to build this new one also. It’s a beautiful table and I’m very grateful that you are going to share it with us.

  12. Johnny West on 24 June 2019 at 4:03 pm

    Wonderful yet simple looking table. Looks like just the thing to give the dado jigs a go. I’m looking forward to this series.

  13. Christopher Simoni on 24 June 2019 at 7:20 pm

    Very nice. I am new to the site and wonder over what period of time the individual videos for this project are made available, i.e., all at once or one a week, etc.? Thank you.

    • Izzy Berger on 25 June 2019 at 11:56 am

  15. John Montoya on 25 June 2019 at 3:44 pm

    I can’t wait until July 1st to sign up for the Masterclasses and watch this console table being built. Looking forward to joining the community.

  16. chrisesch on 30 June 2019 at 6:44 pm

    Is the lantern on the table in the opening your work? Is there a project or construction sketches available for this? Can’t wait to start this.
