A shaker style table made of pine and finished with brown milk paint. I followed that up with shellac and poly for the top of the table. I used a bandsaw to rough out the tapers on the legs and my mortiser to do the mortises. The rest of the project was done by hand. I used a false drawer front and I made a box for whatever to go behind it. This will be a birthday gift for my daughter.

Very nice job.It looks great and sturdy.End tables are an essential part of any well appointed home.When it comes to selecting a end table or any other piece of furniture, there are no hard and fast rules. Make sure that the table you choose is of the right size, goes with the other furniture pieces, and opens up your space.
