Coffee and End Table Project (Part 9)

The bases of the end tables are now standing on their own 4 feet. You can start to get an idea as to how these tables will look when they are finished.

Using Thinner Plywood

I was concerned about glueing the 2 sides together because the front and backs are made from ½” plywood while the sides are ¾” plywood. The reason for using 2 different sizes was to avoid having to purchase an extra sheet of ½” oak plywood. Since this is my first time using ½” plywood to make furniture, there was the risk that the table might rack or twist because of it. However, it appears that the bases of the end tables are solid and most importantly, squared.
