This is my first furniture project. The table is based on the Woodworking Magazine Autumn 2004 article, built using white oak (mostly quartersawn white oak). The drawer dovetails are my first attempt ever at hand-cut half-blind dovetails, and I got to say cutting dovetails on oak is hard work for my chisels! The mortise and tenon joinery were done using router table and table saw.
The finish is General Finishes Oil Based Gel Stain – Candlelite (two coats) and General Finishes Arm-R-Seal Varnish as the top coat (two coats to the whole table and two additional coats to the table top only, sanding in between coats). I used Bulls Eye Sealcoat Shellac Sealer inside the drawer.
