That’s an interesting table design, well done. Must have been a lot of area to finish.

Roger – These are wonderful. The cherry looks so warm and inviting. May I assume they pivot on the pedestal? Tell us about “a pair” ... are they perhaps being used as other than sewing tables? Again, great job!

P.S. – Love your Free Little Library!

Stellar job on the Shaker table)s) build….I really like Shaker stuff. That’s my favorite kind of furniture to build.

Thanks to everyone for your compliments. These have been on my bucket list for a long time.

Some answers to questions:
1. Top of the yoke is fastened on the pedestal by a double wedged mortise and tenon joint and does not swivel.
2. I made a pair because it is easy to make a second one after setting up everything to make one.
3. I made a double drawer sewing stand some time ago and it is posted on my LJ web page.
4. Both of these stands have already been spoken for.
5. The cherry comes from local cherry trees that were milled at a small local band mill and was dried in the drying racks in my shop.
