This miniature table fits snugly over the arm of my sofa, to give you somewhere stable to stand a drink. It's an approximate scale replica of a country pine kitchen table that I bought some years ago.
The construction is simple pocket-screwed joinery (see my couch table for more on pocket screws). You don't need the strength of mortice-and-tenon joints in something this size.
I don't have a lathe so I had to buy the turned legs. In fact they're sections cut from mass-produced stair-rail spindles, which are a convenient and cheap source of turned legs for small projects.
