The wife Rhoda wanted end tables for Christmas (with round corners)...American Walnut with Maple inlays…I just finished these tables, well not really, the other one is still in the paint room drying after a little touch up, but it looks the same as this one. They are 22”x25”x23” with Blum motion slides. They were built using pocket holes (fast and easy). I used Lacquer on the top and Danish oil on everything else… Rhoda loves them so thats good enough for me. I was going to do more inlay type stuff but the wood is to beautiful to make it busy with inlays..Hope you enjoy, and thanks for looking…..(I’ve added the other table one day later) Bob

Beautiful work. I agree with you about the potential for overdone inlays to take away from the God-given beauty of the walnut. I like your style. I particularly like the solid walnut drawer bottoms. And why not use the solid wood over quarter-inch plywood?! Good choice.
