Still taking some baby steps in making furniture.

This table is for our screen porch and is made out of scraps of white oak and walnut.

Finished with amber shellac and then several coats of medium gloss spar urethane for moisture protection.

This is a good looking table. It has nice proportions and the walnut/oak combination works well.

Thank you for looking and your comments are encouraging.

Good proper joinery is a slow process for me, but I am starting to see some better fits and still avoiding dovetails at this point, but the mortise and tenons are going better and I used a taper jig for the first time on this project so there may be hope for me yet.
