    Classic design and well executed. It's an easy design to use as a base for alternative versions, such as with a wider apron and a drawer and/or with a lower shelf, etc. You can vary the look with this design by altering the amount you relieve the edges, too. Great job! Make some more of these!

    Simple is elegant. I really liked working with ash. Thanks for sharing.
    Rustic? Well, no. That was not my intention!

    Table was a Christmas gift for my wife's Pastor. Well received, BTW...

    Nice color. Is that a four-sided taper on the legs?

    How did I miss the original post? A very nice little table.
    Sharp solves all manner of problems.

    Legs are taper on 2 sides only, outside corners are straight. Most of the Shaker style tables I make are tapered this way.

    Colour is a Minwax stain called "Gunstock", seems to do a nice job on the Ash.

    Pastor is bragging all about his new, little table.
