I agree with Shawn: Great job. Did you use a pattern? It’ll certainly last a long time.

Nice work. The craftsman and shaker styles are great to cut your teeth on. Straight forward work with a timeless design. Good job.

Nice job Brian. It looks like you have an entry for the Thorsen Table challenge. I was thinking of making mine with a similar look.

Very nice

Did you make the table top from solid wood, or use plywood?

Thanks again all! I didn’t think about entering that piece to the contest though – think I should?

Bill: the entire piece is solid wood (top included). I glued the top up from 3 pieces.

I think it is limited to one for the official challenge but you can show us as many as you’d like!!
