About $30 in White Pine Boards. @x4 was resawn down for the legs. Legs are tapered on the two inside faces, via handplanes. Outside corners of the legs have a bead detail. handcut dovetails for the drawer ( with a secret compartment) Knob used to be a finial, modified down to a drawer pull.

Infamous Witch’s Brew and 2 coats of Poly Gloss varnish. Bottom edges of the aprons also have a bead detail.
90% hand tool project, other than a bandsaw.

IF anyone wants the measurements for this little table, I can post them later..been a fun Project to do.

Well that turned out nice, Bandit. Good job! What’s next?

Very nice table, and I bet the fun in making it was the hand tool experience. I’ve got to ask: what is the witche’s brew?

Witch’s Brew: Starts out as an old quart can of stain/varnish. Any and all leftovers of stain or varnish go into the can. rather than have a shelf full of almost empty cans….I can toss the empty ones out. Then the quart can is topped off with BLO, and stirred to mix. Brushed on what ever project involving the shop.

Yep…

Could also be the shadows from the tree behind me…

As this is the top before the Poly Gloss went on.
