Well Plan Fans, you might remember that last time we offered drawings and instructions for Mario Rodriguez’ beautiful, Scandinavian-inspired coffee table. This time, we are taking you to the opposite end of the furniture-making spectrum, a quantum leap away from the coffee table toward a whole new genre of both function and grace.
It’s a tea table.
Not just any tea table, mind you, but a stunning Queen Anne piece by Dan Faia with hand-shaped cabriole legs and a porringer top. If the modern look left you unmoved, you owe yourself a look at the old-world charm of Dan’s work.
The free download includes an annotated, exploded drawing of the table, along with details of the legs and top, and of course, Dan’s instructions for building the piece. That includes step-by-step tips for shaping the legs and for creating the unique porringer shape on the tabletop’s edge.
And, of course, it’s not just for tea. If you like your guests well enough, you might even let them rest their soda pop on it. Just make sure they use a coaster.
