Mission Oak Coffee Table

I built this table for myself. It was my second project and I learned a lot from my brother's father-in-law, Gary. He helped me do some trickery with the grain of the front apron and drawer face as well as the dovetails on the drawer. It's a great little table and we use it every day. Wouldn't change a thing.
