Pencil post night table

I design this cherry pencil post night table at the request of a customer who wanted cherry night tables with legs like the posts of the cherry pencil post bed she purchased from me.  The table would have been simple enough were it not for the fact that she also wanted a shelf under it.  The shelf is attached to stretchers that are mortised into the octagonally tapered legs.  The tapered legs required that the tenons be slightly angled. While the table shown does not have a drawer, one could easily be added.
