Built for my sister’s apartment. This project was my first project using my mortiser instead of drill press and chisels.

Cool looking.
For the top, how did you control the wood movement in your joints? I see that the oak is quater sawn, did you just glue the end pieces on or is there something else there?

This is another gorgeous table. Putting in the mahogany panel adds visual interest to the table.

Nice job.

Ooh, you have a mortiser. I’m jealous. Very nice simple arts and crafts design but not all that “simple” to make well. I like! Very nice.
