This is an end table I made about a year ago based on Popular Woodworking plans.
I needed a place to put my drink while I sat on my couch and watched tv.
The wood used is Red Oak. The drawer is made of Poplar.
This is also my first attempt at hand cut dovetails. I made a box first as a warm up.
The finish is Transtint Aniline Dye, BLO, and wax. I like the finish and it has held up ok. The only problem is that we used to have a bottle of hand sanitizer on the table and my son started playing with it and got some on the table. it washed out some of the dye on a couple of spots. The finish would have been fine for this table if it wasnt dyed.
Hope you like it. Let me know if you have any questions.
The last pic is a box I did to warm up for the dovetails I did on the drawer.
