I made this little side table from the left-overs I had in my wood rack. The boards were kind of cupped with multiple knots along the length. I cut out the trashy sections and came up with enough good oak for the top, skirt, and legs. Stained with a light cherry and finished with semi-gloss lacquer. Happy with the result.

You did a great job on this “scrap” table. Looks great where you have it in the house.

It just goes to show that there is no such thing as scraps. Nice table.

Well done. What kind of joinery did you use? Looks like pocket hole screws? Just curious, whatever you used it look great!
