I made an entry table to match (sort of) the entry bench that I made earlier. The impetus for the build was that the entry bench did not provide enough storage space for our shoes, and also to provide a sort of balance in the front hallway. Instead of using mortise and tenon for the stretchers as I had done with the bench, I used my new Jessem Doweling Jig to to attach them to the ends using dowels. After I had built it and brought it into the hose my wife decided (and I agreed) that it needed one more shelf, so I made an adjustable shelf that attaches to the legs, since there is no side panel at this point. In retrospect I think it might have been better to have another panel instead of the open area on the ends to hide the mess, but it is too late for that now.

Good looking piece of furniture, and knowing you it is sturdy and will last many, many years.

Thanks! I am slowly learning new skills but there is always so much more to learn. The thing that I am most proud of is that I can now get a (simple) finish to at least look decent. The more practice I get the better and easier it is.
