This was my first Guild Build with the WoodWhisperer Guild. I love the guild and highly recommend you all join. The legs and aprons are joined with mortise and tenons. The top is glued up cherry and I’m really happy with the way it turned out. This was the first time I built a drawer. It was a bit more challenging than I thought it would be but as always, I learned a lot in the process.

I went to the wood whisperer a couple of weeks ago. How does it work? That’s a great shaker table.

Simple lines are sometimes the most pleasing. That is a great looking table.

Helluvawreck, Marc Spag over at the woodwhisperer is the man. I would start with all the fee content and see if you like his approach and style. Behind the guild doors is mostly the same stuff but it comes with a small yearly fee. I think it was $60 – $80 per year (I can’t remember). As the guild evolved we started doing projects together. For instance, in the month of March, 68 woodworkers made versions of the table above. We are now working on a chest of drawers.

Participation is voluntary but the more we do the more we all learn.

I really think you should join if you can’t get enough with the free site.
