Plans came from the “Lost Stickley Side Table” in Popular Woodworking. Wood is Peruvian walnut that I picked up some time ago on sale. Drawer box is hard maple. A lot of firsts for me on this one. All joinery is hand cut. First hand cut dovetails, full and half blind, first keyed through mortise and tenon. Many of the joints are angled, which was challenging. Three coats semigloss Arm-r-Seal for the finish. Gave it to my mom as a retirement gift. Thanks for looking.

Beautiful classic design with traditional elements like dovetails and leg joints.

Nicely executed.

Do you have any advice on the hand cut dovetails? Did you use any guides, etc…?

Thanks for sharing

Great looking project. I especially like the mellow luster to the finish. The only way to ruin walnut is to use a high gloss finish, but in this case you really nailed it.
Good work.

I saw this project in an A&C furniture book, thought about doing it—but you beat me to it! It looks great, and you seem to have nailed all the fine details! Your mom will love it!
