Side Tables



Made by Jim Sinclair, Ottawa, ON

This pair of side tables is made from a combination of cherry and bird’s eye maple. The base is solid cherry, and the box is bird’s eye veneered Baltic birch with solid cherry accents. The top is solid bird’s eye maple. The drawer is a basic solid maple dove­tailed drawer fit to the box opening and a false front made from the box’s missing face. The tops are just under an inch thick with a substantial hand planed under-bevel that gives them a light appearance. There is a maple detail in the cherry arches, on both front and back. It’s actually just a couple of maple layers in the bent lamination used to create the arches.
