I built this Shaker piece for my daughter-in-law quite a few years ago. She reminded me of it the other day. It was one of my first serious attempts.

Thanks Martin and Jim. I salvaged the cherry from a remodel job I was wiring in a mall. The hardest part about shaker are the turnings. They have to be just wright or it doesn’t look authentic.

Thanks alot Don. This one has the draw that slides through so it could be opened from either side. It slides on rails hung trom the top. Those shakers were unbelievable designers.

Thanks for the nice words dude. I know I built it from an existing plan but I,m not sure from where. I’ll look around and see if I still have it. If I find it, it’s yours.

Dude, I couln’t find my issue, but the shaker table was built from a plan in Fine Woodworking #116. A project by Robert Treanor.

I have this project in the que now and will be starting it soon I am curious what kind of pine you used for this project it has such a lovely color
#13 posted 04-28-2012 11:06 PM
White pine. I live in New England

was it clear white pine I have the article and am anxious to get this one on the bench

It was but I’m sure I cut it out of a piece of knotty. White pine is very abundant in New England and pretty cheap at the mills. As I recall the only pine in the table are the draw sides and bottom. The rest of the parts I made from salvaged cherry that came from a store remodel I wired quite a few years ago. The job site dumpster. Always a good source especially at the demo stage. You’ll have fun making this piece. It goes pretty quick and looks great. Make sure you pay attention to the turning and leg lines. It’s what makes it Shaker. Go at it Dude!
