This is my first project using hardwood and hand cut joinery rather than screws and nails. The lumber is red oak from HD that I hand planed flat. The top is dovetailed then planed to a 45 degree angle. The shelf is mortise and tenoned. I finished it with danish oil the photos were taken after the application of the second coat. Don’t know if I will add another coat. Is it necessary?
I am pretty happy with the final results but I go back and forth about how I feel about the 45 degree angle at the top. I would like to hear what other people think of it. Thanks.
