These are two mission end tables in quarter sawn white oak to go with a mission coffee table and TV cabinet. The legs are mitered to provide quarter sawn grain on all sides (the same process used on the coffee table).
Like the coffee table, I used CrystaLac wood grain filler on the table tops, but I didn’t stain the tops first this time (I should read directions). A second coat of stain gave me the color I wanted. Usually grain filler is mainly used for a gloss finish, but it gives a great smooth surface for a satin finish too.
