Hi fellow jocks!
My wife wanted an end table made and I really like Mission Style furniture. While looking for end tables I came across a picture of this McCoy end table. I looked for plans, but could not find any for McCoy style furniture. So I got out my T-square, and I worked up my own plans. It was very intersting with the angles and changing measurements. The first two pictures are of the finished product and the second two pictures are with one coat of Watco dark oak danish oil. I am thinking of using Black Bisons Wax as a top coat. What are your suggestios? Thanks for your input.

Great job. I really like the design! Any chance you’ll make the plans available?

I like the design but the grain selection and orientation doesn’t look “Mission” style , JMHO.

Well I guess I’m not a purist. I used the wood I had available to me. I am not going to invest the money into quarter sawn oak until I fill I can do it justice. I am a little dissappointment the way the grain highlights in some areas and not the others. I have never used a grain filler so was leary about finishing with it. Thanks for your comments Dusty, I’ll see what I can do about the plans Brandon. It may take me awhile.

Nice build. I know what you mean about getting it right before going to quarter sawn white oak. One question, what is the angle of the legs, in other words, what angle did you cut the bottom and top of the legs? thanks…den
