My first crack at end tables. All of them are made from red oak. Drawers are rabbeted (spelling?) in. Sides and back or mortise and tenoned.

I made the first one and it came out decent out of sheer luck. A month later I had a person that wanted me to make two for them. So I had to make them from memory. Lesson learned now I keep drawings and cut lists.

Looks like you did a good job there. If you getting orders that is a good thing. And yes always keep a diagram around. I have a few different pads of graph paper filled up with drawings. Once I complete a project that I like and may want to copy I’ll draw it up with all of the dimensions.

Very nice. Oak is one of my favorite woods to work with. It’s amazingly versatile for almost any project.
