I based these two movable side tables on an early 20th century, Arts & Crafts style, smoking stand. The original stand was white oak, but I chose black cherry from the mountains of West Virginia for my tables. The nice, light cherry color will deepen to a wine red over time. They are finished with a hand rubbed oil finish and wax. The flat table surface is right at arm chair height making them useful for small items like TV remotes. The cross-bar handle makes them easy to move from one placement or room to another. (Click on any image to enlarge)
The cherry drawer fronts are joined to the maple drawer sides with hand cut, “half-blind” dovetail joints, which means the dovetails show on the sides but not on the face of the drawer.
