I made this console as a gift for my parents. The wood are walnut, red oak, birch plywood and rose.
For the top of console I joint a lot stripe blocks and using dovetail joint. Legs are finger jointed and reinforced small brass pin, and drawer are built form birch ply. with drawer lock joint.
It was inspired by Kaleo’s table.
Finishing/ Tung-oil, shellac(drawer) and wax

This is an interesting project. The through dovetails add a nice detail to the piece. The woods work well together.

Thanks for the post.

I could see the Kaleo inspiration in it.. so you were successful :)

These modern pieces are gorgeous – in my house, all that empty space underneath would be soon filled with junk… I’d have to put doors on it to hide the stuff hahaha

Modern indeed! Really interesting top on it and beautiful dovetail detail brings out the craft in even a simple modern design. Very nice.

Great piece, you can indeed see Kaleo in this, but with your own flair. I really like the drawer pulls, very original!
