Finally finished this up in time for Christmas.

Design is loosely based off of a Woodsmith mission coffee table out of oak. I decided that I didn’t want the lower shelf, I wanted drawers, and my wife didn’t like the tapered legs.

Made out of solid walnut, and finish is Watco Danish Oil followed by Arm-r-seal.

It’s still a bit dusty in the photos and still needs cleaned a bit.

Stunning top and great work on the drawer fronts, too. Thanks for sharing.
I hope you’ll enter the LJ winter contest. ;-)

Been following the build in A Furniture Makers Forum, turned out gorgeous Jmartel! The dust really highlights the joinery ;-) Drawers instead of shelf really cuts down on the clutter accumulation potential. Thanks for sharing.

Looks very nice and well constructed to me. I like the hardware you used on it too.
