These tables were requested by my better half, for the sitting room. Made the tables from solid cherry lumber. The coffee table measures approximately 40” long x 24” wide x 18” high, the end table is smaller but follows same style and construction. The table tops and lower shelves are made up from edge glued planks. Legs are cut from 6/4 stock. The tables were dyed, then stained, and finished with several coats of a oil/urethane mix. The final finish coat was a satin finish. I enjoyed making the project and she’s happy using the tables :)

Very nice. A little A&C and a little Asian influence.

really like them, ESPECIALLY the leg sets, little bit of geometry going on there

fantastic finish, can’t see your joints on the top – is the dye and stain responsible
