Pedestal Table

At first glance most would class this pedestal table as an advanced project, it is more in the middle range of difficulty. There are many plans for this classic style pedestal table, some are more difficult than others, involving things like steam bending of the apron. Nick Engler does a great job of simplifying this design. The kerfed apron simplifies things and is probably a better solution. My manufactured pedestal table has a steam bent apron that no longer lines up very well.

So here is the plan for a classic that you will be proud of, no mater what your skill level. You will need a 10" or larger swing lathe to turn the pedestal. In a pinch there are jigs that can be built to turn it, utilizing your router, but that would be a different post. The table slides are available at many hardware stores and through woodworking supply outlets.
