I also do ship modeling and was in need of a table to set one of my completed models on. Found plans for exactly what I needed on the WWJ site and built the table from oak with poplar secondary. Modified the dimensions slightly from the plans so that my model fit the top of the table. This table was the reason that I built the router table so that I could do the sliding dovetails on the aprons and legs (Well, it was a good excuse to build the router table anyhow!) and was my first attempt at building some “serious” furniture. I learned a lot and am ready to try more now. Tremendous boost to my confidence.

That is nice and clean it is going to look great with the ship on it.
Lovely grain patterns.

That makes a real nice display table for your ship model and the model looks fabulous. You have a lot of talent.

Wow, very nice work on both accounts. Would love to see more pic of the ship.

Looks like a kettle full of shop wood scraps for the fire place. LOL

I love the Shaker style, so—naturally – -I love that table.

And that boat … just leaves me speechless.

Bravo !!

Greetings Bob:

Shaker style furniture is my favorite to build….I’ve built a couple, but never have tried building a ship.. I wanted to build one and put it in a bottle, but the bottle was too small, or the ship too big…..

Anyway…..great job on the table, and I like the contrast in the oak, too…....

Two weeks ago I visited the Whitewater Shaker village, a side trip arranged by the WIA conference. I’ve always liked Shaker style furniture. If you ever have a chance to visit a Shaker village it will give you more of a perspective/background.
