End tables for my parent’s bedroom. All walnut. Constructing them was pretty easy. Cut some half laps on the table saw as well as a radial arm saw after I had glued up panels for each side. I didn’t quite think about hanging them until late so I threw a piece of scrap purpleheart on top to hold it onto the wall. I also had to put some screws through the side to hold the solid piece of purpleheart. I was thinking about lacquer but ended up finishing them with boiled linseed oil and poly mix. I probably did a sloppy job on the hangar part of it but they’re filled with books and stuff so I think it’s perfectly fine as is.

I like the idea of hanging it. Nice.
