Good morning all,

It has been awhile since my last post, been busy with the navy over the summer and now finally getting back into the shop. My wife wanted a table for her chair in the bedroom, so with the scraps I had in the shop I came up with this table. The legs, aprons, and top is made of white oak i resawed from 8/4 stock and the panels are waterfall bubinga (i think that is how you spell it). The joints in the table base are all sliding dovetail and the feet are made from redwood to match the top. The top is frame and panel with pinned tenons. I know it is not a show piece but she liked it. Also in the next post, I built the mirror that hangs over the table with the leftovers of the white oak and walnut scraps.

You’ve done a great job with this table. I like the contrast with the bubinga.

Thanks for posting.

Great looking table. Nice job, I like the bubinga. I’ve used it on a cradle and my workbench that I’ve made.
