This is a side table to match the dresser/changing table I made for my nephew, Carson. It is in the shape of a C, obviously to represent the first letter of his name. It’s made from a single board of walnut, mitered at the ends and wrapped around. It also had a live edge that I left. I reinforced the miters with dowels driven about 3 or 4 inches in. Finished with Danish Oil and dark brown wax.

Thanks for looking.

great simple design and beautiful finish.
