First fine woodworking project. Didn’t start with any plans, just drew it up in CAD to fit the window alcove it’s going in. 60th birthday present for my Mother-in-Law to replace an old Ikea computer desk she has her sewing machine on, hence the “Sewing Table” title. Table top and legs are cherry, the rest is maple. Finished with a clear oil/urethane sealant that my favorite Rockler sales associate recommended. All joinery connections, just plain mortise&tenons that I cut by hand. Table top is affixed by metal clips because I had to ship it cross-country to get it to the birthday party in time, and attaching the top prior to shipping was out of the question. Hopefully this is just the first of many project to come. Thanks to all the folks who post at Lumberjocks to give the rest of us ideas to build on.
