Went out to Lowes, and bought $23 worth of “whitewood” and a 2×4x8’

30” legs were ripped from the 2×4, then turned on a lathe
Legs have white plastic feet nailed to the bottom of the legs. Witch’s Brew for the first coat, straight BLO for the second coat. White knob.

More to read in the Blog about this Shaker End Table.

Size of the top: 3/4” x 16” x 27”, stands 31” tall overall.

Very well done. I’m still impressed that all 4 legs reach the floor. Mine never work out that way.

I can’t believe how fast you got this one done.

I like the style, proportions and joinery a lot. I think you would have benefitted from a wood sealer though.

Nicely done, Bandit. Really like the bread board ends. Any tips for turning pine? Successfully, I mean. Hope the Boss doesn’t table nap this one from you! Thanks for sharing.

-- God bless, Candy

Excellent job sir. You also showed that effort makes the difference in the outcome of the project and not the type of wood.
