Cherry Arts and Crafts side table. The grids on the sides started out as a single board which I cut apart and then glued back together so the original grain appears across the gird. Top is 18” wide by 27” deep. The finish is Minwax wipe-on-poly. Seven coats on the top, and 3 on the rest of the table. There is a drawer, but I decided not to install a handle or knob for the time being.

Simple and elegant. The extra effort on the grid was well worth the results.

Great job, I’m a big fan of maintaining the grain pattern across pieces whenever possible. It’s not always easy to manage and takes some planning.

Nice job. Would have liked to see a close-up of that grid and the grain pattern since you went through all that work.
Either way, well done.
