I built this for my oldest son a few months ago. It’s a really simple build, but serves its purpose. The entire peice is made with 3/4 MDF (Except for drawer bottoms, Drawers not installed in this picture). I used rabbit and dado joints for all the shelving. It is fairly heavy being made out of 3/4 stock, but I actually attached the table top with velcro so the entire peice can be disassembled and moved when needed. It’s not much, but he enjoys it. In the picture it still has some dust from sanding on it, which was cleaned off once I got it placed where I wanted it. The drawer faces are the same color as the table top.

Hi Chris,

This is a very useful project and I am sure that your son appreciated the effort that went into it.

Nice job.

Thanks, it was the first woodworking project I did. It was a pretty good starter project for me, as it taught me a lot about the use of rabbits and dados and really got me interested in all types of joinery. Right now I still do all my mortises by hand, so it is still taking some practice. I have a table that I am working on now, and the mortise and tenon joinery is taking a while, but it’s fun to do.

I just finished my first project also and it feels good to get started. This looks great and I am sure he will get a lot of use out of it. Good job.
