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.

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.
