I built this for my best-man’s daughter who is turning 1 year old

For me it is my first mortise/tenon work – my first “displayed” dovetail joint – and my first time working with walnut

Looks great. Did you do the dovetails and MT work by hand?

Thanks Eggman

However – my skill level is only at the point of router and jig work

Nothing wrong with router and jig work – nice job.

it looks like there is one through MT and the other not? Was there a reason? Am I missing something. It looks great, nice dovetails!

This looks great, I’d like to use this same design to hold my dogs food and water bowl haha.

Lanaug – The MT blends in too well on the other side – it’s hard to see in the picture – but it’s there

Travislucia – Funny you say that – my first design used oak and no angles on the legs – didn’t come out to well – so I made a dog food and water stand out of it

Thanks for the compliments everyone
