This is a pair or end tables that I made out of some ash I had laying around. I tried to make them in the mission style. I know this should be quartersawn oak but this had to do. Everything is mortise and tenon joinery. I used a couple of hand planes to put the bevel on the tops. The last picture has a scrollsaw puzzle I made from plans out of WOOD magazine.

Nicely done and thanks for sharing. The ash turned out well.

Gotta love the mission style. I made a similar set of three a few years back and they have endured perfectly. Hope your do the same.

While I’m not very savvy on furniture style, I do know what I like, and I like these very much! Very tasteful.
