I was inspired to build this based on a photo I saw of the original made in Hancock Shaker Village.
I deviated slightly, mixing Cherry and Maple, and added the hand turned ebony drawer pull.
The original also had the reversed tails/pins on the drawer, which I copied, although I did two tails instead of three.
Sliding dovetails connect the legs to the pedestal. These were cut with a router in a slide/jig that I built. Handcut dovetails on the drawer and yoke.
Thanks for looking.
