This is my second furniture project. I made this in 1997 as a class project with Jeff Miller (J. Miller Handcrafted Furniture) over a weekend. It is a basic mortise and tenon joinery table made from cherry. It measures 29” tall x 14” deep x 42” wide. Upon completion, I gifted this project to my sister as a house warming gift when they moved into their new home.

Andy, as I have said before, you got my attention with both the design and the wood on this project. It looks really good and I am sure your sister enjoyed receiving it.

You did a nice job on the table’s construction and it was a nice gesture to present it as a gift.
