This was my first Project in relearning woodworking with all hand tools. The coffee table is made from reclaimed red oak. All joints ate mortise and tenon, Bridal joint, or Dove-tale. the spindles are mortised into the stretchers and the stretchers are through tenon and draw bored into the legs. the bottom shelf is mortised into a grove in the bottom stretcher. As is the top stretcher mortised into a grove in the table top. The drawers is dovetailed with the tales showing on the front to give a bit of flare. the drawer slides out both sides and is pinned in place with one of the corbels. in other words, one of the corbels has a dowel that foes through the leg and into the end grain of the drawer this stops kids from getting into the drawer.
All told the project took me about 2 months to Finnish and was a great project to pick up some great hand tool skills.
