a marking block that offsets your line by V2". (See "Outline of top" in the illustration at left.)

Band saw the top to shape, sand the curves and finish-sand the top to its final grit.

To attach the top, glue scraps (about 7/8" x 7/8") to the top edge of the side and back aprons. You'll attach the top to the base by screwing through these blocking pieces.

Now screw a drawer kick between the top drawer rail and the blocking. This piece of wood keeps the drawer from drooping as you pull it out of the case. Then screw the top to the base through these strips and the front drawer rail.

My Finishing Technique

Round over all the edges with a 1/8" roundover bit in your router and sand everything up to #150 grit. Saturate the piece with one thinned coat of DEFT oil (an oil and varnish blend) and let it dry for one week - yes, one week.

Add two coats of sanding sealer, sand it with #240-grit paper, use two coats of semi-gloss lacquer and rub with 0000 steel wool.

Then spray on some furniture polish and wait for the inevitable compliments. PW

Once your drawer is built, fit the drawer guides and screw them to the drawer runners.

After assembling the unit, flip the base onto the underside of the top and trace the pattern using a marking block. This will give you the identical serpentine shape on the front and side of the table.
