This contemporary table takes advantage of readily available materials and case joinery accomplished with splines and pocket screws. The frame’s strength comes from its core. Whereas a solid wood panel needs to float in order to accommodate seasonal changes in humidity, a plywood panel can be glued within the frame, essentially creating a single, solid assembly.
I used 1/2" primed plywood for the panels, and made the frames from stair treads, which I like because they’re made from clear, straight lumber, of the appropriate thickness. Alternatively you could mill your solid wood parts from 5/4 stock.
Note: The table’s dimensions can be adjusted to make a narrow hall table or short side table.
