This is a table I made from plans I bought at Woodcraft. Can’t begin to tell you now who put the plans out. Solid walnut except for the drawer bottoms. I screwed up the drawers and ended up using pocket holes to build them instead of locking rabit joints. Otherwise I think I did ok with the build. The front apron, drawer fronts, etc. were made from one piece of walnut – hence the nice grain flow. The table was donated to my church for our services auction and brought in $475 for the church. I’m very proud of that.

Thanks Ozzy. I honestly don’t recall what I used on the finish, but believe I used wipe on poly.
