Well, from what I've been told, and by the email I got from her, My Mom likes her table. As soon as I was sure of this though, I suddenly was made aware of another problem. My wife wanted one similar to it. So, since I am broke and trying to figure out what to make her for Christmas, that gave me a good place to get started.
This one is made of cottonwood. It is fifteen by twenty and thirty two inches tall. It is stained with Minwax Dark Walnut stain and then finished with Minwax Clear Gloss polyurethane.
I will finish this post out with some more photos. I was able to do the top, shelf and drawer front in the style that I wanted to do on my Mom's. I was disappointed that I could not do this on that table. I wanted to make my Mom's out of mahogany though, and I did not have pieces large enough to do it. I was able to do this on my wife's table, because it is made out of a cheaper wood, cottonwood. I had plenty of that on hand. Then, with the stain I used, I still think it turned out nicely. I hope to one day have the material though to do this in mahogany.
