I built this table for my sister’s Christmas gift. Boy was she surprised. This table was my project in woodworking class I attended for a semester at College of the Sequoias. This table is made of alder and pine. The top measures 37” X 12”. The drawer is about 9 1/4” X 9 3/4” with 8” full extension slides. This table is modeled after a table in a catalog. I must thank my teacher, Mr. Lehman, for the finish work on this project. First we used Minwax stain conditioner, which optimized the Minwax ebony stain. Next the ebony stain was coated with sanding sealer before multiple coats of lacquer clear with black pigment which was Mr. Lehman’s special blend. This was a challenging project, it now resides at my sister’s south Florida home.

Great looking table.

I am about to build a side table that will have a lower shelf similiar to yours and was wondering how you attached the lower shelf to the legs? Your feedback is much appreciated!
