Peruvian Walnut & Maple – been on the to-do list for a long time.
Glued top but frame is mostly Kreg-Jig construction. I has some warts like most of my projects but the Mrs. likes it :-)
Lining up the drawer was a bear. It still closes a little rough.

Nice job I also like the colors. The taper on the legs is a nice touch also. Do you have a tapering jig for your tablesaw?

Bailey – yes my secondhand table saw came with a nice adjustable tapering jig. This was my first time using it!

I really like the two tone projects. Do people typically stain the wood prior to assembling the pieces or after the final assembly ?

Shawn – in this instance I used two different woods (Maple and Walnut) to get the two-tone effect. They were finished after full assembly with a satin polyurethane with no tint.

Thanks. It is very nice. My wife would love something like that. Hopefully I can learn how to build these things.
