Learn To Build a Mission Side Table


This project is patterned after a table designed by the legendary early 1900s Arts and Crafts designer, Gustav Stickley. I've wanted one just like it ever since seeing a black-and-white photograph of an original table, but the price was out of my range. So, I did what woodworkers do when they want something nice: I made one myself.

Striking quartersawn wood grain is a big part of Mission's appeal. But this isn't the only traditional Mission material in this project: so are the tiles. Genuine 5/8"-thick, handmade Arts and Crafts tiles would be perfect for tables like mine, but I opted for some similar 4" x 4" tiles I found at a local clearance store. The 1/4"-thick, mottled green pattern suited my design. It would be rare to find genuine Arts and Crafts tiles at a local hardware store, but a quick search on the Internet will yield many sources to try. Get your tiles before you build your table. This way you can size the table precisely to fit them. You really don't want to have to cut 1/8" off the tiles to fit into the cavity in the tabletop, nor do you want to discover that the tiles stand proud of the surface after you set them.
