This is the latest Project that me and my wife are working on. It is a standard shaker style hall table with a small twist. Instead of tapering the legs and stopping below the skirt we continued the taper all the way to the top of the leg. We then angled the tenon shoulders to match. This project is made from solid Mahogany. I hope you like it.

I added some new pictures that I finally got around to taking. these show the table after being finished with a high grade varnish.

As a small comment. This table has no fasteners or glue in it right now. Just mortise and tenons.

Looks great. I don’t know how you tapered your legs, but there’s a really good video on the Popular Woodworking website on tapering legs with a jointer. Keep up the good work.

I just made a tapering jig with a piece of hardboard and a few chunks of MDF and ran them through the table saw. I will have to check out the article that you mentioned. Thanks for the encouragement.

Very nice piece of furniture. Wow. I would not have the courage to put anything together w/o glue. Congratulations to your craftmanship.

How did you finish the table?

Sorry, I just meant that it did not have glue and fasteners now I couldn’t wait to post it. I will be gluing the mortise and tenon joints and attaching the top with a couple of blocks screwed to the top and set into 1/4” dado’s in the skirt. I will probably be finishing the table with a Mineral Spirits and Varnish mix with a couple of bouts of sanding between coats.
