Oak end tables. I call them “Nothing” tables. Not very fancy, huh? That’s all what the wife wanted. Really, the only good part about them are the rails and legs were joined with sliding dove tails. I would have to detach the top for you to see them. Just have to believe me. Lol.

These look good to me. I like the lower shelf joinery.

Shoulda put a secret compartment in them where you hide your cigars or something. That way whenever you look at them, instead of feeling disdain, you enjoy a little moment of perverse pleasure in knowing that you have a little secret :D

I think our wives have the same taste. She’s been searching for side table ideas for weeks. She does require drawers, though. Think I could add them. Great work.
