This the first trial assembly of a table using a stump supported by a frame made from turned and octagonal stock. The spalted maple stump will be held up on 5/8" dowels to bring it level with the top of the legs and the frame will fit closer at each side when all the tenons are fully seated in the mortises. This small table would work great as an entry table, giving you a place to put hat, purse and gloves as you put on your coat. But it is also a beautiful piece of wood that could be regarded as "art".
