This information has been reprinted from a 1912 Popular Mechanics publication titled Mission Furniture And How To Make It. The accompanying illustration shows another style of a mission table. With prepared lumber this table will require only the work of making the joints and putting them together.
The simple design of this end table allows you to easily modify the size and create a table with maybe a different purpose, but an equally attractive appearance. If you take a look at the drawing, you will see that all I did was make the square footprint of the table slightly larger. Instead of two vertical slats between the rails the table now has three. All of the joinery and construction techniques stay exactly the same. This alternate design option is available to download in this Online Extra.
I offer these simple dimensioned drawings of some of my projects free of charge.
Waste not want not is the theme for this side table project. The pallets I used to build my other projects yielded unused 4 inch x 4 inch boards. I also had a fair amount of warped boards that were not usable. This table is my way of addressing those issues. I managed to use up four of the 4 inch x 4 inch boards on the legs and the top is made up of warped boards doubled up on each other.
This side table is a replica of a friends table. It seemed like a great project to build. I had a lot of fun building it, and I learned a thing or two.
This Parsons table is an icon of modern design that you can build in a weekend.
