I wanted to challenge myself, so I decided to make an end table to match our new sofa. There were lots of mistakes but when I was done I was very happy with it. I also learned a ton.
The legs are red oak along with the top. The base was made out of some spear wood I had laying around.
I saw a video on tapping your own holes and I went ahead and tried it, I was surprised by how simply it was, I also never tried dovetails before and didn’t have a clue on what I was doing, I tried several test pieces and when I was content I went a head and completed the base.
The bottom shelve I didn’t take my time on and got anxious and left some gaps. Next time I know.
If anyone has any tips they would like to share I would enjoy hearing them. I am very eager on learning.
