Walnut and Maple Hall Table
Still fairly new to woodworking, this is my first shot at a full piece of furniture. Our house needed a table near the fron entrance, and I chose walnut for the body and figured maple for the top. I wanted the legs to be sturdy but not feel too beefy and our local lumber warehouse happened to have a bunch of 1/2-inch walnut, so I made two-piece legs separated with 1/2 inch through tenons to give it a lighter look. The apron is connected to the legs with a through tenon, and the sides meet that tenon with a box joint in the middle of the legs. Finished with Danish oil.
Front drawer pull was made from cutoffs. I spent a fair amount blood pressure trying to design a pull that would match the rest of the piece!
The two-piece legs join to the front apron with a through mortise. The sides slide in and meet that tenon with a box joint.
My dovetailing skills are not quite up to prime-time yet, so I opted for finger joints to build the drawer.
