Standing just over 25” tall ( 25-1/2”) top is 19-1/4” wide, by 32” long. Legs have a bead running down the outside corner, and are tapered on 2 faces. Aprons have a bead along the bottom edge. Top has bread board ends.

Has a full depth drawer ( for them LONG place mats?) half blind dovetailed front corners, dado to house the back of the drawer. Legs were a glue up. Top was a 4 board glue up, before the bread boards were tongue & grooved in place. Single metal handle on the drawer. Drawer front was ripped away from the top and bottom guide strips.

Stain on the Ash is called Gunstock, by Minwax. followed by 2 coats of clear gloss poly. There be a build blog somewhere about this table. Hand tools where I could, power tools when it made sense. No hard fast rules.

Table was for a place to set my beer down, when I am out sitting in the Gazebo this summer. Table will come back into the house this fall, and spend the winter and spring indoors…...

Thanks for looking in!

Nice table. Gazebo’s are good. Tables for sitting your beer on are better. :-)

Nice looking table Bandit. I think I’ve seen you use the Minwax gunstock and ash combo before. I really like that color. I’ve been trying to figure out which piece of furniture I want to do like that. I’m thinking an entry way table.

Looks great but I have a question. Did you put a coaster under the beer of just place it on the table? Inquiring minds want to know.

Great looking table. Really like the gunstock finish. Room for more than one beer.
