    Finally FInished a Nightstand

    I'm taking Fine Woodworking 101 at Santa Fe Community College. The assigned project is to make a table of your own design. I made this little nightstand. Simple little guy, but it was the first time I did curved legs, so I learned a lot. Its ash finished with waterlox and paste wax. Thanks for looking.

    Very attractive table. Nice work! Love the legs. (but then, I am a leg man )
