This is a follow-up to my post of a few weeks ago about a 12" by 66" by 1"
piece of Purpleheart I got from my hardwood supplier. I really can't
bring myself to cut that lovely board. Russ gave me an idea when he
suggested a sofa table. This lovely board will be the top for a narrow
hall table. I'm starting to look for design ideas on the web. Possibly
shaker, maybe craftsman, maybe some type of oriental design. I've seen
some tables in the past that look like they are just floating in mid-air
and the legs seem hidden or understated.
This is one of those projects I really like. Lots of time to get the
design right, some quality time in the shop, and finally a minimum of
finishing to do since I want the wood to show with no stains etc.

You might want to DAG for "console table". Some people call almost
anything a console table, but that's what you're describing.
Do you want a freestanding piece, or would a wall hung one work for
you? Can't get much more floating than that without rare earth
magnets or helium-filled drawers. ;)

Thanks, found the console table links before I saw your post. Won't do a
wall hung unit. It will be free standing. I've seen several shaker
designs that I really like may go with that. Now to find time away from
work and family to get r done.
