You don't have to be a professional woodworker to make this slender side table. Simply order the elegantly shaped legs and the ready-made mortise-and-tenon aprons and add a top of your choice. Use wood glue and clamps to assemble the aprons and legs. Let dry, lightly sand, stain, and seal. This top started with a piece of 3/4-inch plywood edged with lengths of 1-by-1. A sheet-metal shop fabricated the copper top to fit like a lid over the plywood, which is screwed to the frame. To add interest to the surface, the copper was dimpled (from the underside) using a hammer and nailset.
