Really nice work! I love the grain pattern of the apron.

Great taste in furniture, great taste in beer!

Thank you everyone. This is my first real woodworking project I’ve ever done. Everything else I’ve ever done was finish carpentry, flooring, out-buildings, etc. I needed an end table to rest a beer on, and after looking at stuff made overseas, and mass produced items I figured I might as well try to make my own. This table made from pine from Home Depot, the legs are made prom ripped down 2X4’s haha. This was my first try at tapered legs as well as a glued table top. It was so much fun, I went out and got a slab of Black Walnut. I cant wait to start the new one.

Great work for the first project. I liked the finish, what did you use?
Also so good looking legs from 2×4s.
I can’t either wait to see your second one with the walnut…

For the finish I used Minwax “Puritan Pine” stain, and then 4 coats of oil based poly (satin). I’m looking forward to trying an oil finish on the next one.
