This is an end table I made using the plans from Woodsmith magazine.

Wood is Cherry.

Finish is BLO, shellac, and varnish. I rubbed it with 0000 steel wool and wax to give it more of a satin look.

This is a nice table. I really enjoy mission style furniture and cherry is my favorite wood so what is not to like about this piece!! Nice job on the dovetails too.

I enjoyed looking at this post.

Beautiful table great craftsmanship. I like the drawer bottom. What did you use to create that pattern? It looks like leather.

Man that is a nice looking table.

Love the leather in the drawer, that is a great surprise upon opening.

Great craftsmanship is clearly evident here.
