Unfinished Country Style End Table

The first major project that I set out to complete on my new table saw was an end table built out of 1×4’s and baulistrades. A very creative friend of ours was the inspiration for this project. The inspiration for this project is shown below.

The following pictures show the version of the table that I created. At this point the table is still unfinished. Future work will include adding finishing touches and “crackle painting” the table to give the table a distressed country look.

The entire table is built from 5 8’x1″x4″‘s and 4 baulistrades. 1-1/4″ wood screws were used for construction throughout.
