your details on the drawers are nice. You did a nice job of insetting all of the drawers with what looks like consistent, tight gaps around each edge. Do you use a router jig for the half blind dovetails, or do them with a chisel?
thanks,

Hey Mark,

Thanks for your comments. I use a half-blind router jig from Rockler on most all my drawers. It works great on drawers, and I leave it set up for drawer use all the time. It is a very inexpensive jig ( I think I bought it on sale at Rockler a while back for $49.95), but it sets up easy and works great.

Very nice serving table and I like the Ambrosia Maple bowl on top. Did you make that also.

(thanks again Karson for pulling this to the front of the line)
I think this table is great!!! Lots of space on the top AND the bonus of tons of drawers. Definitely a winner in my books.

Hmmm might just have to make something like this…....

Karson-

Yeah, I made the Ambrosia Maple bowl also. I used to do a lot of bowl turning, but mush less now as spend most of my time on new furniture pieces.

Awesome Piece. Where does one acquire water based lacquer? How is it to work with? The smell of your typical lacquer kills me.

lclashley-

I have used a product called Hydrocote Resisthane on many projects. It is a water-based lacquer, available in satin or gloss, from Highland Hardware in Atlanta. The have a web site -www.highlandwoodworking.com. The lacquer can be brushed or sprayed. I have a very inexpensive HVLP spray outfit that handles the Resisthane very easily. It dries fast, can be applied over oil-based stain or shellac, and cleans up easily with water. And no headaches form the lacquer odor afterward. It's good stuff.
