These are two Arts and Crafts style end tables I built for our bedroom. They are made of Honduran Mahogany. Finish is brown mahogany Transtint dye in denatured alcohol followed by Seal-A-Coat by General Finishes and then multiple coats of GF Arm-R-Seal. Each table has 50 mortise and tenon joints. The stiles and rails are m&t and the slats on the sides are as well. I have seen several projects where slats like those were installed in a groove with spacers in between but I made separate M&T joints for each one. I have about 80 hours in the 2 tables.

Outstanding Arts and crafts end tables, a super build and the finish gives them an extra rich look.

Really sharp looking, love how the color turned out.
