QSWO table made for my wife.
Beautiful old white oak lumber.

M&T joinery.

Broke down and bought a hand made pull for this one.

Hey Greg, great job on the table! Looks like the WOOD magazine design. I’ve seen a lot of those tables built from WOOD, and I have to say, yours looks the best. You really nailed the finished. It looks right at home with the rest of the A&C decor you have in that room. Very nice!

This is a very nice piece of furniture. I am sure that your wife loved it. No need to apologize about the pull you can’t be expected to be a master craftsman at everything. Just stick to woodworking you will do well.

Thanks for the post.

That’s a nice table with a great finish and the pull goes very well with that style.

-- I can build us one.

Excelent work! You chose the right boards for the top. I love the ray fleck in quality QSWO.

Awesome job – the quarter sawn makes it. I see to many made from flat sawn, and it just does not fit the style.

A+ on the finish as well. I have plans (future) to build two of those for our bedroom. Hope mine come out like that!!

Nice piece of funriture Greg. Add me to the list of admirers of the top.

If I can ask, what is the piece against the wall between the chair and the rocker? It looks interesting also.
