Gracie’s Craft Table & Toybox

This project was sent to us by Kara, a proud wife and mother:

When I first approached my husband about building an arts and crafts table for our 2 year old girl, Gracie, I thought he was going to say, “here is $200 go buy her a table”. I am so glad he didn’t do that because what she got for Christmas is a priceless heirloom that will be treasured for generations. Not only did he create a table based on what she needed but also added some details that I would’ve never thought of, like the bow pulls on the drawers, the bows on the tabletop.

The tabletop is made out of solid soft maple with walnut inlays and then dyed reddish brown, and then spray lacquered. The legs and frame are also solid soft maple with walnut inlays that protrude out 3/8 of an inch on each outside leg. There is one walnut large bow-tie in the center and a smaller one in each corner.
