The BOSS has wanted new end tables for about 15 years. She just couldn’t decide if she wanted new octagonal tables like the old ones or rectangular tables. She just knew she wanted something to match the woodwork in the house. She finally decided to go with the rectangular tables made of red oak to match the woodwork and here they are. The two larger tables are 18” x 23” x 21” tall. The smaller table is 15” x 23” x 21” tall and has an exposed drawer front. That one is mine and that’s how I wanted it. She didn’t want exposed drawer fronts on the other two tables. Anyway, I scored soome A1 grade red oak plywood last summer for $30 a sheet and bought 5. Wish I’d bought more. These tables have raised panel doors and the trim around the top and bottom is off the shelf trim molding I picked up at the lumber yard. They are stained with Minwax Golden Oak stain and finished with 4 coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal oil and urathane finish and a coat of Renaissance wax. She is pleased with the tables and glad she finally has them in place.
