This is an end table I built as a Christmas present from quartersawn white oak. It is finished with tung oil wiping varnish.
This table was one of the first projects I built so I had a very limited selection of tools. This was done using basically just a table saw and a router table. I had just bought a raised panel router bit set and used it to make the sides of this table. I made a long sliding dovetail slot in each of the 4 corner legs of the table and made the mating dovetail along the length of each raised panel side. After apply glue I slid all the panels into the legs and clamped it up to dry. After it dried I routed a 3/4” rabbet into the bottom and glued in the white oak plywood floor of the cabinet. The top is attached with figure 8 table top fasteners. I used European style cup hinges for the door and slides for the drawer.
