This pair of side tables are made of white oak. The tops are quartersawn, creating the ray fleck effect you can see in the close up of the top. The legs and shelf are treated with an ebonizing finish. The tops are finished with Tried & True, which offers a warm, soft hand feel. They were designed for a customer who wanted tables at a particular height to function well with an existing couch and chair. The leg design mimics the curve on the couch legs. After completing the build, I picked up the tool shown below and realized what the table reminded me of. The name for this project was born!
