Tilt-Top Table

Elegant project builds hand-tool and machine skills

by

This mahogany Federal tilt-top table is the perfect project for intermediate-level woodworkers. It’s neat and compact with only a few parts, and the construction uses both hand- and machine-tool techniques. The table’s center column is turned on a lathe; the legs are attached to the column with sliding dovetails. The slots for the sliding dovetails are cut using a router and a jig that orients and supports the column. The tapered legs are cut on the bandsaw and shaped with a spokeshave and card scraper. The article includes complete project plans and step-by-step photos.
