Salsa Console

Submitted by nevadany on Sat, 02/18/2012 - 07:24

I modified the Salsa console table plans a little for my version. Assembly is pretty much the same, just added more detail like making 5 piece doors and draw fronts, adding back brackets to allow for cedar paneling behind the doors and recessed the middle walls so the doors close on them instead of inside the opening. The center will remain open for now.

the whole table and parts are poplar, minus the drawer bottoms which are beech ply. Because its made out of poplar, it jacked the price quite a bit. However, i wouldn't consider using anything less then select pine to make this table which is only slightly less that poplar. The #2 pine is total crap and not suitable to build a piece of furniture out of. Anyway, I've got about $300-$350 in building supplies (wood, screws/plugs, finish), and about $80 in hardware (hidden euro hinges and bearing drawer slides).

Hope you like it, as i am quite proud of it!

One other thing, if you plan on building this table, double check the material & cut lists. I found discrepancies.
