My spouse wanted a simple table to use with her laptop or for writing the occasional letter. Sized just for her, this table has a maple base and a walnut top and drawer front. The drawer is made of maple, joined with box joints and a stopped dado so that there is no “over” cut. Legs/aprons are mortise & tenon, of course. Shellac finish—clear on the maple; amber on the walnut. Oil-based polyurethane to make the top resistant to spills.
Many thanks to the LJs who have answered my questions on the various forums. I learned a lot building this.
