I designed this for my daughter who wanted a rustic buffet table but not too rustic. It is made from pine, plywood and oak for the top. It measures 55” wide, 12” deep and 30” high. It was my first project to use dovetails for the drawers. I used a General Tool jig and found it very easy to use. My first test pieces fit perfectly. The finish is one coat General Finishes water based Black stain and 3 coats of Minwax Polyshades Golden Oak on the top.
