Breadboard end detail
Tapered legs w/ stopped mortices for haunched mitered apron tenons which meet in the middle.  Fun joinery.

Front view

Walnut side table adapted from Anthony Guidice, "Tables."  Very thin and light, but surprisingly strong with the apron tennons mitered to their mates inside the legs.  I just hope the breadboard ends keep the walnut top flat w/ seasonal movement.  

Finished with two coats Danish oil and 3 coats wet sanded wipe-on poly on the base, ~8 coats on the top.

Design or Plan used: Anthony Guidice
