My wife’s Christmas present. I modified the plans a bit, like thicker legs, wider shelf, no routed apron, etc. They are finished with linseed oil and wax. They have not been rubbed out yet in these photos

Very nice pair of tables. What type of wood did you use? I like the look of the thicker legs.

The tables are cherry with walnut pegs. I picked up about 1000 board feet of cherry a couple of years ago from a lumber auction for about $0.72/bf rough cut 4/4. If you look closely at the legs, you’ll see a seam where I ripped boards into 4 pieces, matched them then glued them together. The walnut pegs are scraps from a local millwork shop. I did these as an inexpensive yet nice (hopefully) gift.
