Leftover bits of oak (flooring, millwork) salvaged from the undercroft of an old church. The drawer front was originally cut from the same piece as the apron; but then I goofed and that piece ended up in the kindling pile. Since the poor thing was already a mishmosh, I figured a mismatched drawer front couldn’t do much harm here.

Did you measure correctly to have it fit under the window molding or did you have to re-cut the legs like I would have had to.
Nice job.

I don’t think the drawer front looks bad. In this case with a single drawer it makes it stand out. I like it and the rest of the table also.

Very nice table ! I like the flow of the grain in that drawer front even though it isn’t the “original”piece….It doesn’t take away from your project : )
