Walnut table. Hand-cut dovetails, and mortise and tenons. A lot of work with very sharp planes. First time using shellac as a finish. Seems like it will take some practice to get good at it. Haven’t yet decided on the drawer pull. I really need to clean my basement.

Lovely table. The dovetails are particularly sharp looking. Such pretty wood… No wonder its difficult to commit to hardware.

nice work – the grain on the drawer front really pops. Dovetails look great.

-- cut it twice and it's still too short...

Beautiful table! That finish looks very nice from here. Drawer pull HAS to be wooden!

Beautiful work MT77! The grain’s popping with a great color combo and

excellent joinery makes this table a master piece.

Love this table and the draw front is really off the charts. I would only recommend to taper the underside of the table top add a real nice touch, but this came out wonderful…BC

Turned a knob from a piece of walnut. I’ll be drilling a small hole in the face of the drawer.
