Made from cherry. The end tables measure 17×22 x 26. The coffee table is 17×42 x 19. Finished with one coat of BLO. Then after sitting for a week I applied three coats of Arm-R-Seal. I won’t take any credit for the legs as they were purchased from I do own a lathe but have not acquired the skills. I also used my domino to make the M&T’s and am impressed at how quickly the joinery went.

Fun project and the wife is happy. Thanks for looking.

Sweet set of tables, very nice. Can’t go wrong with Shaker style, and cherry.
