This table was made from a plan trio that I purchased from Rockler. It included end table, coffee table, and hall table. I first made the coffee table from standard red oak and it was very sturdy and beautiful, so while at the lumber yard some time later, I decided to pick up some quarter-sawn white oak for the end table. This is my first time working with quarter-sawn entirely. It is very stable and easy to work with. Not a lot of warping, bowing and cupping to deal with. I made the legs quadra-linear quarter-sawn as well. That was really fun to try out. It’s all traditional joinery with regular and through tenons. The only screws in the piece are holding the top to the stretchers. I finished it with arm-r-seal semi-gloss wipe on, four coats, sanding in between each with 400 grit. Photos taken with an iphone 4.
Thanks for looking!
