Made outta reclaimed pine. It's a special order tv stand.
I found a delta hollow chisel mortiser and a delta tenon jig on Craigslist the other day. First project using them. Love it. I've always used dowels in my joints which felt pretty good. But love a mortise and tenon.

wish I had a cool line like everyone else...

What technique did you use? Hand chopped w/mortice chisel, drilled and chiseled or machine cut?

Great looking project. Good idea going with the M and T joints. Dowels are so 70s. :)

Congrats on your new joinery endeavor. The piece looks nice.

Shame it's pine but at least it's re-purposed. Hard to tell from the pics but is it going to be inside or on a porch? If a porch open or closed?

Again nice job.

Nice looking table. Mortise and tenon is on my list of skills to learn.

Tact is for people not witty enough to be sarcastic.

That pic is actually in my shop. It'll be inside. I attached the top and shelf with table top clips to allow for movement.

wish I had a cool line like everyone else...

Thank God for that. Wouldn't want the movement police here to jump your rear for screwing it fast. :)

Jon, I understand what you're saying bout pine but i think it's pretty with the dark walnut stain and several coats of poly. Not to mention I love the idea of reclining the lumber and it being free isn't bad either...
Al, love you brother!!! 😉

wish I had a cool line like everyone else...

I've built plenty of furniture out of pine. It's all been thrown out within 5yrs. BUT, it's been in active households.

My comment had nothing to do with your build design, more so the material. Pine is very soft and why it is not suited for furniture. It dents and dings very easily.


Your build is nice and I'm glad it's taught you new techniques, but hardwood would've been much more appropriate for such a nice piece.

Nice job, and don't let anybody bother you because you used pine, after all it will be just sitting over in a corner with a TV on top of it, if it gets dinged up there are other problems in the room.
