Shaker table

This a little Shaker side table that I’ve been wanting to make for a while. The wood is recycled birch my father-in-law found somewhere. I thought the figure would work well with the simple lines of this style table. The plan is very similar to the one from Woodworking Magazine issue 2, 18”X18” top, 27” high. This was my first attempt at half blind dovetails. The knob is turned from the same wood. Finish is Boiled linseed oil and a couple of coats of wipe on poly.
