My second shaker table, which I’m a little less happy with than the first one I built. I wanted to make one to sit next to my “Dad Chair”. Since the chair is a recliner, it’s pretty low, and I realized that the original dimensions of the table made it too high, so I just shortened the legs by 5 inches. That takes away a lot of the elegance of the design I think. I find this one to be a little squat and stubby looking. Oh well.
It’s made of cherry, no secondary woods. The inlay on the top and the knob are walnut. When I had the top all put together and cut, it was kind of boring, so I put the inlay in to spice it up a bit. I’m glad I did, I think it adds a lot to the piece. Finished with two coats of shellac, followed by 3 coats of Enduro-Var.
-- I cut it three times and it's STILL too short!
