As usual, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Work, family, etc. makes it hard for me to find time in the shop.
Simple shaker style table done in Cherry. I think the overhang on the ends of the top is a little small, but the length of the top was constrained by the size of the lumber I had in the shop. It was the widest I could make it and still get enough out of a single board to do a glue up for the top.
Hand tool work almost exclusively, except for the dimensioning of the rough lumber (and I used a lathe to turn the knob, of course). Hand cut dovetails at the front and back of the drawer, The top is the only piece that was sanded, the rest was done with my smoothing plane and card scrapers.
Finish is shellac as a sanding sealer and wipe on poly. I know it’s not a period accurate finish, but needed the protection, as this will be called into service as a side table for the dining room.
