Small Table with Rails Plan

This small table would be attractive in a living room or on a porch. It is designed to acquaint the woodworker with the problem of laying out and cutting tenonandmortise joints by the cabinet maker's method or the joints may well be cut on machines. The placing of the rails offers a good problem in breaking up an area into well-related parts. Some open-grained wood or one having distinguishing marks such as cypress, will be most in keeping with the design. If the piece is to be used on a porch it should receive an oil or asphaltum varnish finish.
