I built these two tables as the first portion of my bedroom update. I had to make them on the small side as there isn’t much room left after the king size bed. They are solid Cherry with Walnut accents. The lower shelf fits into dado’s along the side rails to allow for expansion. The tops are secured with figure 8 washers for the same reason. Hand cut 1/2 blind dovetails in the drawers. I used 3/8” Maple for the drawer sides for a bit of contrast. Sanded to 400G on the sides and 600g on the tops. 4 coats of water borne Varathne on the sides and 5 on the top and lower shelf. Thanks for lookin’.
!

Very nice. My wife has been asking me to make some as well. Were these from your own plans?

Mark, very tasty! You can’t go wrong with cherry and it will look even better as it ages.
