This is another project I did a while ago and never posted. It’s a red oak hall table that’s mostly made out of left over red oak from my stair remodel. The legs are glued up and tapered. For the front and sides, the aprons have an arch with a small bead detail. The drawer front is cut out of the front so the grain is continuous across the face.

The finish is just 4 or 5 coats of the Minwax tung oil with no color. I mostly stain oak, but I like the natural look on this piece.

Very nicely designed and built. I really like your decision to cut the drawer front from the same piece of wood that completes the front. The table qualifies as a ‘green’ project since you used left over stock from another project.

Thanks for the comments. I find continuous grain to be pleasing to the eye, so whenever possible I try to maintain that.

Very nice. Amazing how much that little bead detail dresses this up. I noticed it immediately.
Well done.

It took me awhile to take in all the things that made this interesting to me. I eventually noticed that the drawer pull was the only dark wood on the project and it looks ‘just right’. Nice project!
