Stickley Side Table

The first furniture piece that I made was this Stickley Side Table.  I wanted something to go with the Morris Chair that we bought in Ann Arbor.  Jan bought me the wood and a book with the plan as a gift and once we were settled in out here I took a deep breath and got started.  It came out pretty good.  If I had known I would have paid a lot more attention to grain selection but heck - it was my first time.  It now has a place of honor in my livingroom and we use it every day.

Even the finish was a pretty good color match with the chair and footstool.

Please note - I did NOT make the chair or footstool!
