These are the “Uncle Andy” Tables. Inspired by the first furniture project I ever made in High School Woodshop class for my oldest nephew. I made a matching pair with dovetailed drawers for my son and nephew. They are a great addition to the family collection, and I was happy to make one for someone outside of the house. Made from Sapele and used a medium walnut danish oil finish.
