This is my own design, built to fit a specific location in my mom’s house. The design is heavily influenced by the Craftsman end tables that I had previously made her and other Craftsman/Mission style furniture. This was given to my mom for her birthday in 2017.
Unlike the end tables which were dyed using General Finishes medium brown dye, in this case I used Transtint brown dye mixed with denatured alcohol.
Similarly to the end tables it is built primarily with quarter sawn white oak except for the legs which are rift sawn.
Joinery is all traditional mortise and tenon. Mortises were cut using the hollow chisel mortiser. Tenons were cut at the table saw with a dado stack. The drawer features hand cut half blind dovetails.
