I present piece number 6 of my office suite, the side table. This piece has been in the works for a bit but I finally finished it up this week. Like the rest of my furniture it is all made from dimensional lumber and stained with General Finishes Antique Oak. This project was a challenge for me as I have only done one other drawered project. I learned a lot on this project and I am looking forward to applying those lessons to my most challenging project yet. My printer buffett (for lack of a better term) I am hoping to be starting on that in the very near future.

Picture 4 is of the unit which this replaced, it is an old school desk from my father’s bedroom. I am now uisng it as a printer stand and will then be passing it along to family. Pic 6 is just a close up of the hardware I used, bought it on clearance almost 2 years ago I think, knew I find some use for it and I think it fits in pretty well.

Thanks all for looking.

Nice job. I like that fact that you can something nice with dimensional lumber. It builds great confidence for more costly wood.
