This five drawer end table has walnut plywood sides and the rest is solid stock. The top drawer is a real functioning drawer with the do it yourself suede lining. The other four drawers are TV trays that pull out and fit nicely in your lap. The white material in the trays is Corian 1/4” thick. I did manage some dovetail joints on the top drawer using my Delta dovetail jig.

Finished with a light walnut stain and five coats of tung oil.

Now I think it’s time to shut down the shop for a month or two and hopefully get a new shop built. wish me luck on that one.

BEN, I HAVE FIVE COATS OF TUNG OIL ON THIS PROJECT. I LOVE TUNG OIL, ITS VERY FORGIVING. I WIPE IN ON AND WIPE IT OFF. AFTER IT HAS DRIED FOR TWO WEEKS I USE THREE DIFFERENT TEXTURES OF SCOTCH BRITE PADS ON MY FESTOOL THEN TWO BUFFING PADS, WAXS AND FINISH IT OFF WITH A LAMBS WOOL BUFFING PAD ON THE FESTOOL.
I PUT THIS TOGETHER WITH POCKET HOLES AFTER ALL THE PIECES HAD BEEN FINISHED. IT MAKES IT SO MUCH EASIER TO TO FINISH AND BUFF THAT WAY.

BRADFORD, IT WAS A GOOD PROJECT TO MAKE EXCEPT WHEN THE WIFE WANTED THE DRAWERS FLUSH MOUNTED AND THE LEGS MORE OF A SHAKER LOOK. DIDN’T HAVE PLANS FOR ANY OF THAT. THE ONLY REAL PROBLEM I HAD WITH THE PLANS WAS IF YOU MAKE THE TRAY LEGS ACCORDING TO PLANS WHEN OPEN THEY ARE LIKE 14” HIGH. THATS WHY I JUST WENT WITH A TRAY. I ALSO MADE IT A BIT LONGER AND WIDER THEN THE PLANS CALLED FOR. HOPE YOU GET AROUND TO MAKING IT. IT’S FUN.
