I made this table at Lonnie Bird’s School of Fine Woodworking. I wrote several blogs about my experience but the quick summary is I had a blast, learned a lot, improved my skills and came home with this table.
It is made of walnut with poplar as a secondary wood. The top is 18 3/4” wide by 17 3/4” deep and it is 27 1/4” tall. The finish is shellac, mostly clear shellac but a couple of coats of Amber shellac to warm it up. The pull is antique brass from Ball and Ball. The legs are mortised to accept the apron’s tenons. The front upper rail is dovetailed into the legs while the lower rail has a twin tenon. I used a scratch bead for the profile around the drawer.
I think the pictures are self explanatory. It is a nice size table. It was fun to build.
