Very nice.
I like the drawer handle.
Where did you get that from?

The color / finish came out very nice.
Is this table meant to be disassembled ? What’s holding the top in place ?
Thanks

Beautiful work, cherry was an excellent choice for this.

Very nice work ,I’ve never seen a shaker piece with through tenons. I would call this style closer to arts N crafts.

William, Believe it or not, handle came from Lowe’s. The stand is for her room and it’s the one she wanted.

Dusty56, I thought about leaving it all loose and it seemed fairly rigid but I went ahead and glued the dadoes. Top is just attached with washerhead screws through oversized holes to allow for movement.

Design is my own, and could be argued is also somewhat arts and craft style.

Thanks . I hadn’t known the Shakers to build knock-down tables , and was also leaning towards the arts and craft period furniture instead. : )
