Cherry end table I completed with the same style as an cherry occasional table I made for the same room. The table has tapered legs and a single dovetailed drawer. The pull is made from walnut and the sides and back of the drawer are made of maple. The table is spray dyed with light walnut color dye and then top coated with 5 thin coats of lacquer sprayed and then rubbed out with 2500 grit buffing compound. It’s a simple and handsome piece for our living room. Thanks for taking a look.

I like it !! the drawer dovetails are great, too bad nobody will see them to realize the effort.

This is absolutely one beautiful table. It may be as you say a simple table but the the execution is very well done.
It is almost a shame to have to keep the drawer closed and hide those dovetails :)

Very nice table, elegant look on the legs, and the dovetail arrangement adds a beautiful touch.
