This is my 1st attempt at building an indoor piece. I wanted a wall table for my office. It is made of red oak. I purchased some red oak on craiglist for $40.00. Most of it was only 3-5 inches wide with mitre cuts on one side. I cut off the mitres and used my table saw and planer to square the pieces up. I glued up pieces for the majority of the project. I tapered the legs on 4 sides using my table saw, with the Incra Miter 1000SE, which helped a lot! The legs are 1 3/4” at the top and reduce to 1” at the bottoms. I still have to build the drawers and stain it. I am going to dovetail the drawers (my 1st time) and then use red oak for the face front. I am going to Rockler or Woodcraft in the near future to look at stains and get some advice on the proper procedure for finishing it. As I have said before, I am a novice at this stuff. I will post more pictures when it is complete.
