I made this Saturday for my Step Son and his wife.
They needed a small table to put a lamp on and a place to charge their phones.

I used pieces parts that I had around the shop.

The center Post was a rectangle leg for a conference table that I’m making.
The corners are all mitered and I didn’t like them for the conference table so I made 2 new ones
(with solid wood ends) and kept the 2 mitered ones for whatever. (Used 1 for this little table.)

A while back I did a walnut kitchen that had slab style doors I had ordered from a door company. A couple of the doors had to be remade so I used one of the old ones for the top, bottom and middle shelf. All I had to do was put a piece of trim across the front of one of them.

I cut a dado in the leg, and cut a notch out of the middle shelf so that the shelf slid into the dado, keeping the leg one piece.

I added some feet at the bottom for more stability.

Hit it with some Minwax Special Walnut stain and a few coats of pre-cat lacquer, brought it home the same day.

Very well done. Walnut is one of my faves, and your finish is great.
BTW, got the router switch figgered out and installed. Now I have 2 bases with switches. The base you sent cleaned up well. Thanks again.

Thanks Railbuck, TungOil,
Always good to knock another one of the 1000 honey do projects off the list. lol

Thanks Bill, now you just need another router for it. I hear you can’t have too many. :)

Sorry I might have misunderstood – this is walnut wood and you stained it with walnut stain ? Was it to even out the coloring of the different boards ?

It’s all made from walnut plywood. I stained it to give the wood more depth.
I like walnut natural but, sometimes, I like it better with a stain on it.
I know some people thinks it’s a crime to stain wood but I’m not one of them.
I used the “walnut” stain, not because it’s walnut, but because I liked the color.

1st post and it was about my decision to stain walnut? Glad I could bring you out of the closet. :)

Have your say...
