Here is my latest project, an end table. The top and side stretchers are made from Q/S Red Oak which was beautiful after planning. I picked it up from Hardwood’s Inc in Fredrick, MD which was my first time going to an actual hardwood dealer, it was a great place and will be subject of a later blog. The legs I got from of all things, a pallet from work that they send us laminate counter tops on. The orginal stock was 3 1/2” by 3 1/2” but I milled it down and got 2, 1 1/2” square legs. I first thought it was white oak but after cutting it, I don’t believe it is, it has a similar to smell to cedar. Since I don’t have a bisquit joiner, I joined the top together with tounge and grove cut on the table saw and router table. The finish is high gloss poly.
