Library Table Illustration by Mike Del Rizzo I found some white oak that had been rough cut for flooring, which meant that the pieces were all just under three and a half inches wide and a bit over one inch thick.
What makes this project unique is the method used to assemble the drawer structure at the heart of this table.Building a larger project like this in a small shop is always a challenge, but by making the top first, and turning it upside down on level sawhorses, you can use it as a surface on which to build the main structure of the table.
Begin With the Top• Select your best boards for the top.Look for consistency in colour and grain.• Cut the boards 1/2" longer than necessary.The extra is trimmed off later.• Mill the boards using a jointer, thickness planer and table saw, ensuring they are perfectly flat and square.
• Glue the top up in stages.Begin by gluing up narrow boards into wider planks, until they are just over one third the width of the top.When you have three larger planks glued up, run them through the thickness planer to reduce your sanding time later.
