Unique Nesting Tables Nesting tables usually consist of various sized tables that fit or nest together.Typically, nesting tables are separated when extra table space is needed, and placed back together when it is not.
One of the drawbacks of nesting tables is that, almost by definition, each of the tables is a different size and height than the others.For my purposes, I wanted to have 3 tables, each with the same height and same size tops.
The design that I came up with does just that.It consists of an end table with 2 matching tables.The matching tables slide on their sides underneath the main end table.For clarity, I refer to the end table as table 1, to the first to slide under as table 2, and to the last as table 3.
The tops may be left plain, or they can be decorated.I used a router (with template guide and inlay bushing) to inlay 1" dots of black walnut: one dot centred on the top of table 1, two dots on the top of table 2, and three dots on table 3.
The overall effect is of a gigantic die.This added decoration also helps my young son...
