I made this table to serve as a stand for my microwave since it wont fit on my countertop. I also made it so one day it could possibly be used as an end table. It is made from (red?) alder. Tabletop measures 7/8” thick, 15” deep, and 20” wide with a 20 degree underbevel. Top is attached using shopmade buttons to allow for wood movement. Height is 30” tall. Bottom shelf is through tenoned into the lower rails to somewhat keep in sync with other craftman style pieces I have made. No stain was used, just brushed on 3 coats of satin polyurethane, sanded with 320 grit paper, then two coats of gel poly. Once dry I buffed it out with a gray scotchbrite type pad. All in all I am pleased with the outcome and it works much better than having the microwave on the ground. Thanks for checking it out.
