Cherry End Table

I just finished this end table in cherry, about 18” on each side, 24” tall. I used castle joints for the first time (had to try out my new dado stack). They ended up a bit loose, probably from sanding too much to get the fit looser, and I had to use the glue/sawdust fix to fill some cracks. I used the same pattern of routed channels filled with epoxy/black mica pigment that I used in my last end table (walnut). I was happy with how the bottom braces turned out, I read they are a very strong joint. I wish I had waited a few days to put it together, I just made a table saw sled for tapering legs and would have made that change. Finished it with 3 coats of arm-r-seal. I’m still a novice, but I’m trying something different each time I make something to broaden my skill set. My next project is another end table in walnut like my first one, but with tapered legs and a drawer.

Sweet build!
I like the epoxy/mica routed channels. Very cool and a great contrast with the cherry. Nice work on the joints.
Thanks for sharing.

Good looking table. I have never see the castle joints before. Are the two pieces that cross the corner each notched half way kind of like a half lap joint?

Cheers, Jim
