I designed and built this small cherry table for our Living Room. Notable details are the through-tenons and a drawer with machine-cut dovetails.

This is a wonderful table and very well done. Congratulations.

Great job. I have some cherry I wondering what to do with, now I know. What are the dimentions of the one you built?

I like everything about it. I’ve yet to work with cherry, but it looks great with the Arts and Crafts styling. Can you tell us about your finishing method on this table?

Thanks, all.

@lrob—The dimensions are 24” (h) 15” (w) 12” (d). The tabletop overhangs the sides by 1” and the front/back by 1/2”. The drawer face is 4”.

@tbone—Everything except the tabletop is finished with tung oil. The tabletop is finished with polyurethane for added protection.

Love the style. Wonderful job and choice of wood.
