Default Rescued side table

Hello, fellows.
Since I've been at home I have checked my to do list on woodworking.
I decide to start a modiffication of my former workbench but it was clogged, on the top and under it with so many things that I put onto it to be stored later...
I started to remove all the stuff to put the workbench aside when I found two frames of an old side table. The priority was changed to save this little table. A short story is in the attached pictures.

Nice job Alexis. It looks great. By the way I would'n't consider your bench cluttered. Compared to mine it is bare.

It turned out beautifully Alexis.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Alexis, you are a wizard turning throw-aways into new useful items. Great save, you did good, and I see your wife has made good use of it.

Aw, that's what I was gonna say.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

When I see some TV show about woodworking everything's in its place. The same in the woodworking magazines and videos.
We put anything in the old workbench because is easy. Now I have to put everything back to the shelves and it is a big task.
