This was my first time to use mortise and tenon joinery. Everything was handcut (except the tapered legs). Dovetailed drawer.

Great piece Phil. I do a lot of that taping off also. It’s tedious and a pain in the butt, but it sure saves time in the long run doesn’t it. Beautiful work, especially for your first time doing M & T joinery. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Nice end table Phil. And if it’s your first time at cutting everything by hand, I’d say it turned out well! It doesn’t hurt (in my book), that it’s constructed of walnut either. I don’t have a “favorite” wood, but walnut is up there.

Thanks for the kind words. My wife likes walnut. I like the looks, but my sinuses go crazy when I am working with it. I have started working more with hand tools and am enjoying it. I typically work with red and white oak. I recently worked with mahogany and found I really like the way it finishes and cuts.

nice job Phill, I also like walnut but havnt experienced the sinus problem. Mesquite and cocobolo are the ones that get me. Looks like the mortises came out great. Did you use a taper jig on tablesaw for those legs?

I made a simple, on the spot, taper jig. I had some 1/4” plywood that I attached some blocks to to hold the legs.
