I had some maple left over from another project a few years back, and some time on my hands, so I made this little table for the wife. Hard maple, yellow shellac from flakes, and hardware from Rockler. Pegged the leg joints for effect, tapered the legs, made a sliding tenon for the drawer, but not sure where I got the design ideas, memory fading fast at my age.
Thanks for viewing.

I am truly amazed how LJ’s of your caliber can just knock out a project like this…. Great Project Thank you for sharing. I am still wanting to venture down the furnature path I suppose at some point I will get the confidence to do so.

If that is what you can do with leftovers. What can you do with scraps?
Nice work. Really clean lines.

Beautiful and elegant table. Great joinery, wood choice and design, like the legs and the finish. Impressive!
