Do It Yourself : Adirondack-Style: The Beginning of the End Table

Ellingson has been designing patterns and plans for the amateur woodworker since 1948

A happy ending. That's what this Adirondack-style end table is.

Intended to make your outdoor living a little easier, the table measures 34 inches in diameter and stands 18 inches high.

It has plenty of room for drinks for entertaining guests, or a good supply of books and suntan oil. Although it is a companion piece to complete a set of Adirondack-style furniture, the design is simple enough to accent any style of outdoor furniture you may already have.

Built from 2-by-4-inch fir, our step-by-step plan includes photos, directions, a shopping list, cutting schedule and traceable patterns.

Cut the pieces to the correct dimensions, using the patterns. Sand and rout the edges, drill the required holes and assemble with carriage bolts. Even the beginning woodworker can tackle this project.
