This is a Shaker type table made from mahogany and rock maple.
I got the idea for it when I saw a buddy make the Hack table from plans, I made this one with proportions and dimensions of my own. I like the way it came out though the only critique I have for it is that it’s footprint is disproportionate to the rest of the dimensions.
The legs are shaped using the bandsaw out of a large billet and hand planed square.
I hand planed the apron to thickness and then dimensioned them further with the tablesaw.
Floating splines are used for the joinery. The kerf on the apron is hidden by the beading and the there is a stopped kerf on the leg. I choose method this because I didn’t have a router to work with at the time.
