I’m making these oak end tables as a housewarming gift for a friend in Maine. They are out of oak with tapered legs and a drawer. One of them with a lock. I started by cutting up some 8/4 for the legs and tapering them from the outside. I just like the way it looks and is still verry stable. Then i cut up some 4/4 for the rest. The majority of the construction is mortise and tennon with the exception being the dovetailed top stretcher in the front. After fine tuning and dry fit they got glued up and clamped. Then after some cleaning up I applied a coat of oil where they sit waiting for me to get back to the shop to make drawers and the tops.
