I’m a recent college graduate that just started my full-time job. I’m spending my week nights working on my projects for a hour here and there. This was my first project that I started when I got home.

My girlfriend moved into her new apartment down at college and needed something for the side of her bed. So I gathered up some scrap and made this little side table. It’s made out of oak and pine with a mahogany stain. It’s nothing fancy but it will work for the year. I’m limited on space and tools so I’m slowly challenging myself with more difficult projects while buying tools when I can afford it.

This is my first of hopefully many more posts to come.

Thanks for looking!

We all start somewhere and that table’s a good one.
