Walnut side table that I designed and made for a friend. The secondary wood for the drawer sides and bottom is pine. All the joints were handcut, with pegged mortise and tenon on the leg/skirt joints. The sides and back have an applied cockbeading that seemed to add a nice detail to the piece. I finished the piece with an oil/varnish mix and a couple of coats of wax. All in all, I was very happy with the piece except for the knobs that they selected for the piece.

Very nice table. I agree with your opinion on the drawer pulls, but as they say: The customer is always right.

Great looking table David…(feel like I am talking to myself here…lol) Nice tapered legs always make a table, the walnut grain is beautiful and the finish is great. The square drawer pulls really work with the table design….
Great job.

Very beautiful, like the walnut and the design. Love the drawers with pretty dovetails. The pulls go well with it. Great job!
