Tapered Leg Side Table

Tapered Leg Side Table Rogue Engineer 2

The idea behind this project is to show how an otherwise simple build with accessible materials can be easily modified to look so much better. Just by adding a taper to the legs you can add a lot of interest. Another idea is to angle the legs and in this project we do both. Apply these ideas to you next project to spruce it up a bit!
