For grain consistency, I made the aprons and the slip-matched top from a single board. It might seem shameful to rip wide lumber into narrow pieces, but it pays off in the finished appearance.

Tea tables were most popular from the William and Mary period in the early 1700s Da n Fa i a through the Empire period in the mid-1800s. Today, even though earlier dinner times have put an end to daily afternoon teas, these tables still are useful as end tables or occasional tables.
