Here’s my second project, a narrow Shaker style end table I made from Black Walnut. This was a lot of fun to make! The table top taught me a lot about flattening a glued table top using a belt sander. This is also my first oil rubbed finish which I now like better than a poly finish. One the whole table I used pocket hole joinery, and used hard maple drawer sides for contrast. I have to say, it looks nice sitting next to the sofa…I really like it. I plan to wait a bit as a cure time, and then give it a rub down of bees wax.
