The table is 36”l x 18”w x 46” high. solid poplar construction.
both top and bottom aprons are mortised into the leg and the tenons are pinned.
The legs are 3” square and the top is 1-1/4” thick. Aprons are 13/16” thick.
The bead wraps around the leg and apron both top and bottom. Each leg has a 3/8” rabet that accepts the bead trim. In one of the pictures you can see the groove that the bead slides in.

The drawer face is applied to a baltic birch tounge and groove drawer. a small bullnose is wrapped around the drawer face and a small lock was installed. The drawer hangs on wooden runners.
The tables new owner is an artist who makes jewelry. She spends time in a gallery at her booth and needed a strong table to sit at and work at while in the gallery.

The finish is a clear satin Precat Laquer

I really like this table. I especially like how you did the trim around each of your legs.
