This is a set of three Mission style end tables for my Wife. The design you’ve all seen before and came from the Woodcraft Magazine. Quartersawn white oak with maple drawers. I built in a small hidden compartment in the back of the drawers since it was wasted space. The spindles (and mortises) got a little tedious but overall they turned out OK.

Thanks for looking.

I really like your end tables. The finish looks like it layed out smooth as ice.
I usually draw my own plans, so when I buy a plan I tend to analyze it. Did you like the Woodcraft plan, or would you change anything if you built them again?
Great choices on finish and hardware. Love that hammered look. Elbert Hubbard and the Roycrofters would be proud!

Rick I have to say there tables and then there tables and you manage to make nature sing with spectacular quality here my friend. The QSWO is just off the charts and it take a little doing to make them look this smooth and the tone of color show volumes here,also the arrangement on grain orientation was well thought out great work on these gems….BC
