A small shaker table I made out of construction grade lumber the front legs have a cherry inlay around the bottom and the knob is pecan from my tree in my front yard I stained this with a golden pecan and finished with 8 coats of wipe on poly, The drawer is put together with hand cut half blind dovetails my first time cutting dovetails I still got a lot of practice to do before I am going to be happy with the out come but overall I think it turned out nice.

Good job. I think the dovetails turn out quite nice. Great looking breadboards, too. Keep up the good work.

In the future take a look at: Uploading Photos ... a little tutorial I put together for Windows users. Enjoy!
