Absolutely beautiful. I love anything Shaker. This table is a classic. I’ve seen many over the years, but all have been done on the lathe. Your’s is the first stricktly with hand tools that I’ve seen. You are indeed a Shaker Craftsman. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful table.

Thanks all for the comments. Yes, I carved sliding dovetails, which was challenging, but it turned out nicely.

Yeah, that’s great work. When I first read the title, I thought “The pedestal wasn’t done with hand tools!” . You proved that wrong. It is a great looking table, on my list of projects to do. Thanks for sharing.
