Here’s a hall table I just finished for my wife. It’s all cherry with a hand rubbed tung oil finish. I guess it’s arts and crafts style with a teeny bit of shaker mixed in. The faux pegs are walnut. I used mortise and tenon joints. Any and all comments and criticisms welcome! Happy new year!

Great looking table, Carl!

I see you used my favorite cheat of gluing two pieces of 4/4 lumber together to make legs. :-)

I think it is “Carl’s Style” and I like it. Well done.

That’s a great looking little table. I like the way your tapered the lower edge of the top.

I dont think any criticisms would work on this table. It looks VERY good to me. But I think your next project should be a gun cabinet/locker so you can take the gun lock off the fire place, that is not a good place to lock the fire arms. Table looks very good!
