Here it is almost finished with two coats of BLO/Tung/Poly. This is the end table to sit alongside my Oak bookcase made a few months back. The design it the same just scaled down with a drawer put in. The timber used on this piece is a bit of a hodge podge as there are at least 4 different trees involved. But with that in mind I tried to keep things consistent. I used the last of my really nice QSO sliced into veneer on the drawer front and stiles. I had just enough and the side panels are bookmatched QSO with some spalting. The joinery is 4 pin dowels on all the main joints. The drawer is dovetail in the front and pinned in the back. I even did the drawer bottom in oak.
One thing I hace discovered doing this end table and the bookcase is how much I like oak. I did a buffet in oak in high school, which I still have but since then have not worked with it. Only problem is QSO is quite hard to find in Japan.
