Nicely executed. The finish is great, just the right balance of red. When some folks make mission furniture they drill round holes and put a round tenon on the slat, others say that square mortises and tenons are the only way to go. I don’t know which method is more work. Which technique did you use, and after doing so many would you do it again?

Thanks for posting.

Very nice indeed,

The rich colors and style and cut very processional as I can see.

How did you make the door fronts on the night stand please?
I would like to emulate them in a vanity project I’m doing.
