More end tables

My aunt requested a set after seeing the set I made my mother, however she requested that I PAINT them black.....I promptly told her that was a no no in my shop.lol
I like the way they turned out and I actually made some money off them and was also asked to build a entertainment center and some shadow boxes.

Nice. At least you can still see the grain. Good job.

I like that. 12" granite in the center, right? Provides a pretty cool color contrast -- which gives me an idea for the nightstands I was supposed to do about 6 months ago for my wife.

Turning good wood into designer firewood on a daily basis.....

I made a clothing rack to sell this year and finished it on Valentine's day. It QUICKLY turned into my wife's gift!

Very nice end tables. I may try using the tile in a project.

Using tile is something new I've been trying, just remember if you try it not all tile completely flat or square, I cut the pieces for the top making sure they fit somewhat tight around the tile, it may put the top just out of square but in such a small amount that whoever complains about it can just go ahead and build their own.lol

I like the way that came out. Mind sharing the stain and finish that you used?

Yep, just regular knotty pine you can buy right off of home depots shelves, cost $50 to make two of them, plus cost of two tiles which were supplied my aunt to match the renovations.

I may have to modify your design a bit, and make a couple for myself. I'm practically swimming in pine at the moment.

I like that look. Dark with the grain showing. Gives Pine character.
