My latest project after taking a little time off from wood working.Made these for my wife and I,we needed something on the smaller side due to space. Made from walnut and wild cherry,m&t,t&g,and I pegged the top to the legs.Thicknessed by hand,and also my first project with hand cut dove tails-hence no close up of them (lol). They measure 15w x 17d x 26 tall and finished with 3 coats of minwax tung oil finish and 3 coats of hand rubbed poly.Pictures aren’t that good and don’t due the wood any justice.

Thanks guys.I may have zoomed in too much when taking the pictures,because the first pic isn’t too bad.Will keep that in mind for other projects.Could be the camera,kinda on the older side.

Well done. I particularly like the wood combo. It’s nice to see other SoIL woodworkers around.

C’mon man. Show the dovetails. They can’t be worse than mine -seriously.
