I made this table for my Mom. I stay at her house when I work in Ohio, it is where I grew up. I always help do work and maintenance on the house when I am there. I wanted to make something for her and she saw this side table in one of my magazines, I get them all. (I really mean ALL.) This plan was in Wood Magazine I think. Once again the choice of wood is cherry. Come on guys, you just can’t go wrong with it! The finish is a precatalyzed lacquer, I just keep the pressure pot loaded with it, and it works great. I use a satin because it looks good on so many projects. I haven’t done much that called for anything glossy. The emotional satisfaction for this project is pretty high. Mom just treasures it. I highly recommend this project as something easy to accomplish in a weekend and it would be very well received by anyone.
These pictures were taken in my brother’s shop in Ohio. It is great, I have a shop in Montana and Ohio. Half of the stationary tools were mine at one time, so they are like old friends.
