These tables are based on the ones on the cover of Tables by Anthony Guidice. I love the simplicity of the design. The tables featured Dovetailed Mortise and Tenon, which came out great, but I wouldn’t say the same for the drawer dovetail work! The legs are actually recoverd Tulip Poplar from the Hermitage site, home of Andrew Jackson. They were blown down in a big storm and this old growth wood was harvested for many of us to use. The tops and aprons are recovered as well, from local trees in the San Francisco area. The wood was sold as Amber, but I am not so sure about that.
If I were to do these over, I would modify the design somewhat, as they are a bit high unless sat next to a very high bed.
