I just finished this simple cherry buffet table for my wife. I used pocket hole joinery because of the short time frame I had to build it in. I finished it with Arm-R-Seal and topped it off with a coat of Johnson’s finishing wax rubbed in with some 4/0 steel wool. It is super smooth and my wife loves it, which is the important thing.

I did not taper the legs because I was adding a bottom shelf. So to soften up the blocky look of the legs I cut a chamfer on the outside corners of each leg. I put the same chamfer profile on the bottom edge of the top.

The dimensions are 29” high, 14” wide, and 40” long.

Looks great. Chamfers are a great idea to break up the blockieness, not sure that is even a word, like it matters any more right. . Nice piece.
