Just finished these mission side tables for wifey. Took about a year not because they were that hard, just couldn’t find any shop time. These came from some woodsmith plans I think.

Nice looking tables. I understand taking a year to complete the project…you aren’t alone in that universe (grin).

Thanks everyone. Hardware source is Rockler. I was kind of shocked as to the price of the Craftsman type hardware but it is very good quality.

Big Muddy, I built the same Woodsmith plan back in 2000 as a wedding gift for good friends. It still sits in their living room holding books and a reading lamp and more. Did you make the secret compartment?
