Hi All,

A set of oak mission end tables designed, built and finished to match a friend’s bedroom furniture. Design is pretty straight forward and includes dovetailed drawers, mortise/tenon case joinery, arched rails and laminated solid wood top with z-clips. Handles from LeeValley. I like how the color turned out. He seemed please with it. Fun project.

Feedback welcomed

They look great. Now you need to make a pair of mission chairs to sit beside the end tables.

The stain was a homemade blend of 3 Minwax oil-based stains to match his existing furniture. Had to experiment somewhat to get close enough. I topped it off with 7 coats of wipe-on poly.
