Mission-Style Tables: I bought the plans for an end table from Grizzly Industrial. I made a mock-up using cheap pine (legs) and hemlock shorts (rails and spindles) from a local lumber yard. But when I got the spindle assembly put together I realized the tables would be too big to fit on either end of our couch. So I adapted the plans to create occasional tables dividing the dining room from the living room. I liked the pine-hemlock look (it sanded out very nicely) and decided to stick with it, using MDF for the top and the shelf with ordinary door stop for trim. I adapted the plan further to make a matching coffee table. I cut all the tenons on the table saw, all the mortises with a mortising machine (borrowed from my neighbor Mike McMullen).
