It’s been a while but here goes. ;0)

This was an anniversary present for our 28th which was April 4, 2015. I started it about 6 weeks ago after lung surgery. The only request was to have a drawer to store all the excess remotes and stuff if you know what I mean… It is also great storage for CDs etc.

It’s made of Red Oak and assembled with pocket screws as well as Tite-Bond glue. The overall dimensions are 24” x 18” and 20” high. The drawer is 15” x 16” x 4 1/2” deep. The top and shelf are two edge glued 3/4’ x 10” red oak boards. The legs are made up of two 1”x1 3/4” red oak boards glued together

I used Min-Wax Natural stain and Satin Varithane for the final finish coat that I hand buffed with Johnson’s floor wax.

Great to see you back in the shop.
Hope all was well with the surgery. I figure, if it is lung surgery, it has to be fairly serious. So again, hope all is well or cured.
NICE table!!!
I like the quarter sawn front.
See ya later,
