This side table works well next to a chair or sofa, and of course next to a bed. There is plenty of space for books, magazines and a lamp, while the drawer will take care of all the small stuff that we surround ourselves with.

The apron pieces are mortice and tennoned to the legs, and the drawer is dovetailed, for strrength and good looks. The legs gently taper at the foot. This table is a lovely complement to antique or contemporary settings.

Size is 24" wide x 20" deep x 26" high. (I can easily make the piece with a different height to suit your needs.) Price is $1,250 in cherry or maple. Also available without the shelf for $1,050. Other woods on request.
