I had some extra 6/4 Cherry left over from a previous project and I really wanted too try through Mortise and Tenons. There were a lot of first for me on this one here is the list;

- Through Mortise and Tenons
- Half blind dovetails for the upper stretchers
- Padded shellac finish

I also wanted to try to use hand tools as much as possible instead of machines. I only used machines for milling the lumber to thickness and ripping and crosscut boards to final dimensions.

This little taboret table has always been one of my favorites. Yours came out great. I like it in cherry.
