This completes my kitchen furniture construction efforts. You can see my earlier similarly-styled cafe table in the background of one of the photos. Legs and structure are 3/4 poplar, the legs four pieces laminated and cut to 2 1/2” square. Black milk paint with water-based flat poly over for durability. Pocket-hole construction for the frame, drawers dovetailed. Might do chairs but have so much else to do… a coffee table for my livingroom, a full bedroom set, garden furniture, a formal dining table and chairs, prairie style…

This is beautiful! A whole heap of work! A labor of love. This is worth keeping around!
