You may be right Jim. I guess I meant Shaker style for my coffee table.

Beautiful piece – excellent craftsmanship.

Can you pull the drawers out from either side? I’ve seen that on some shaker pieces.

I assume this is maple and cherry. Am I right?

You are correct maple and cherry. I did not make the drawers pass through either side.

Nice use of contrasting woods. great way to have the joint work stand out but not be the focal point.
