I posted this design some times ago looking for feedback, now the project is finally finished.

The construction is all mortise and tenon, with figure 8 fasteners to hold the top on. The bottom shelf is only glued in the center like you would with breadboard ends. This is my first furniture project and I was happy with how it came out, with only a few changes to make the next time around (prefinishing mostly).

Looks like all-around solid construction and build techniques. I hope you planned on keeping it for a few lifetimes 8^)

Well done!

Thanks everyone. The table was for my sister as her Christma-Birthday present. I made a crate for it and shipped it cross country via Greyhound. I told her she’s either stuck with it for life or she has to give it back to me, no craigslist allowed

nice project what kind of finish did you use?

The finish is several coats of Arm-R-Seal semi gloss.
