Here is an end table I built for my grandmother in law. It is made from a single piece of 2”x10”x8’ yellow pine. I did all the joinery with a Kreg Jig. The legs are tapered from 3 inches down to 2 inches at the foot. overall dimensions are 24”x24” and stands 22” tall. Golden oak stain from minwax and a lacquer finish.

Nice job Tim. I saw this on your blog and meant to post there, but got side tracked. Keep ‘em coming.

I’m sure you got a big hug from Grandma.

Just wondering, why didn’t you use glue to add strength to your pocket screw joinery?
And, what did you use to seal that pine to control blotching?

I’m sure your Grandmother-in-law will get a lot of use out of it.

Thanks guys for all the comments.

@Woodwrecker- I would have used glue, but the time frame i was working with wouldn’t have allowed it. I only had about 12 hrs to do it in. I will probably snatch it back later and add the glue in the joints. As for the the blotching on the table, there is plety of it. My grandmother likes the look of. I made her a coffee table from a pine pallet that I finished the exact same way. Thanks for checking it out.
