Set of three mission/craftsman style end tables based on this coffee table plan from Woodsmith. The square one lives in the corner of the room between a couch and loveseat. It’s 28”x28”. The other two live at the opposite ends of the couch and loveseat. They are 28”x20”. The height matches the arm rests of the furniture set.

I used quarter sawn white oak finished with a 50/50 mix of Medium Brown and Reddish Brown TransTint dye dissolved in water, followed by a few thin coats of shellac, then General Finishes Antique Walnut gel stain and topped with several coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal gloss with final coat or two in satin.

My finishing schedule came from Jeff Jewitt's Stickley Mission finish guide.

Interesting. You don’t often see Craftsman style tables with glass tops.
I built a pair of similar tables for a customer a few years back.
Very nice looking set.
