This is a small 2 drawer sidetable i did for fun.
After lots of discussions with myself, decided to leave it the way it is now.
It started this one with the legs, i bought a new bed and my old bed had the short legs wich are now on
this piece. The rest of it are also leftovers.
The finish is 1 layer of woodoil, 2 layers dark oak laquer, and 1 layer of teak laquer.
It was sort of an experiment, i think it worked out ok.

Definitely and uniquely your own style, very tough and strong – would most likely survive a collapsing building from an earth quake. Very interesting!

I like the box joint top you did there Thomas. It looks good with the dark stain. I like the sturdy massive look of your tables, most of us try to see how little wood we can use to make a table.
