This is a recently completed Shaker Hall Table. Here are the specifics;
Cherry legs, tapered on the inside only, keeps the outside line neater. The mortise and tenons are draw bored. After the 3/16 dowels are cut flush, I square the circle with a chisel and install the ebony plugs then plane flush.
The cherry top was resawn from a 12/4 blank. There is a sap void I filled with crushed acrylic pen blank and epoxy.
The drawer fronts are #1 common walnut, got it cheap and the figure is beautiful. Tough to plane though.
The knobs were glued from 8 ebony squares and on cherry in the middle. Thanks to Scrappy for helping me figure out how to turn these.
I like the fine English style pins on my hand cut dovetails, the walnut cleaned up nice.
The finish is French Polish, open pore on the drawers and closed pore everywhere else.
Thanks for looking, I’m happy to answer any questions you may have. Thanks for looking.
