I stated this project 5 years ago as a wedding present for my sister. Now she has a 2 year old little boy but better late than never right? Anyway, it is made out of all red oak (except for the drawer bottoms). I am pleased with the way it turned out and still a bit shocked that it is actually finished.

It’s a nice table out of beautiful wood.

Hey sometimes you have to take a break, then start out fresh. lol You did a nice job, and you should be proud, and I’m sure your sister will cherish it for many years to come.
