A set of end tables I made for my wife to match the tv stand I ahd made. These were the firts end table I had ever built and I had a blast making them. When they were done I was so proud of how well they turned out. This was also my first dove tail drawer I know not a big deal to many but it was for me. It is mad with walnut and maple and finished with Bush oil and wipe on poly. Thanks for looking

That’s a nice looking finish, great looking design all around – I really love the rich dark walnut and how it’s contrasted by the maple, good stuff!
And the dovetails look great, I haven’t gotten around to trying dovetailing yet – but I will, hope I do as good!

A truly great piece of wood working. Very impressive walnut finish and the dovetail joints of the drawer are superb.

very good looking table! the sides actually look more like Mahogany than walnut (at least in the pictures).

dovetails are a big deal to get done right, and after you got it under your control, it’s a great joint that offers the best mechanical hold. did you use a DT jig to make those joints? they look super clean!
