I built this simple shaker table 5 years ago in a high school wood shop class. It was my first time using a lathe or laminating boards for a table top. It is made from rough sawn cherry and the legs are dovetailed to the column.

Great looking Table. This will have a special place in your home. I still have several of my high school projects from 40 years ago.
