Just a small side table, made of cherry with M & T joinery, aprons with beveled edges, a top with more gradual bevels, and tapered legs, and then finished with several coats of danish oil and wipe-on poly. Wish I had added a drawer (though now an excuse for a mate!). Thanks for looking.

Very nice build in the Shaker style. Simple, but beautiful.

Great looking table.

Nice little table. I made one just about like that a couple of months ago. My wife doesn’t like the look of cherry, so I attempted to stain it. That was a mistake. There is a lot of blotchiness and light areas where it didn’t absorb the stain. I said the same thing, which I had added a drawer ;)

Nice job on table.Side tables can look great in any room in your home. If you pick one that matches your other decor, then a side table can add that little finishing touch that brings a room to life.

Thanks for all the good words, everyone. That’s too bad about the staining, John_az. I’ve often had better luck with gel stain for getting a more even look.
