Replica of a Shaker sewing desk. Well almost, it’s supposed to have a small drawer which I never made and the edge profile is wrong for Shaker. The leg has a tenon and each foot has half the mortise, they are fit together and pegged. The stretcher, battens, and legs all interlock. This was in a book and with a sketch of the size and construction details. I redrew it to scale and printed full size patterns for the legs and feet. I searched through a lot of walnut to find the legs and you can see there is some quilting near the top.
