Well heres the tables i said i was going to post. 3 months later here ya go. lol. I built these tables out of knotty alder and i hand cut the dovetails on the ovel table drawer. The finish is Deft laquer. Good news is the customers were very happy with the turnout. I could have done so much better on them. I havent had to much motivation to go all out i guess. My next project will be a mahogony Entry door. Im replace an exsisting new mahogony door. The door is already falling apart. bought from a door company. lol.

That is one nice set of tables there! I realy like the doves tails on that oval table. And hand cut? And your name is beginrbldr’s? They turned out really nice. Too bad they are for somebody else.

What I meant was, I think your name means beginner builder? You don’t look like a beginner to me. I like your name too, but it doesnt fit the project here. : )

Nice job, and you’ve given me inspiration for a finish on the knotty alder tables I’m building right now. Will post them when I get closer to finishing.
