This is a table I designed and is loosely based on some of my other projects, plus some input from my mother, whom the table was made for. I designed the drawer to be hidden when closed. The ledge underneath the front of the drawer allows ease of pulling it out. It’s a pretty shallow drawer, but because of the short depth of the aprons you wouldn’t think it was there. It measures roughly 12×12x24”, made of quarter sawn white oak and all traditionally made with the only metal being the screws holding down buttons for the top shown in picture 5. All mortise and tenon joinery. Finished with red oak stain and a homemade mix of wipe on semi-gloss polyurethane.
Thanks for looking!

The hidden drawer is a cool idea.
