I was looking for a "super easy console table" and once I was ready to build it, I mustered the confidence to try a more complex table top design. Using pocket hole joinery, 2"x2" legs and supports, scrap 1"x2" "blocks" for the herringbone pattern, scrap 1/2" 8"x4' plywood, 3/4"x1/2" pieces to frame the top, and much wood glue, I built this 8.5" narrow console table for under $30. The plan shared on this site was one of the inspiration pieces that helped me believe I could do this too!
How unique is that?! Love it!
Thank you both for your gracious comments. It is so lovely to receive supportive feedback from a community of doers. =D Blessings to you!

I'm going to have to copy you now, you know! What a fabulous idea, fabulously implemented!
=D It was satisfying to make, although watching glue and wood filler dry made me feel like I was the most impatient person in the world. Thank you for your kindness!
It's finally here! Get all the details on my first book!
