I made this shaker table from tigerwood, sapele, canarywood, mahogany and pine. Only hand tools were used, including my treadle lathe for the legs and knob. These wild woods have some crazy reversing grain which is challenging with hand planes, but the results are worth it!

Mike, I have a set of beading planes which cut lots of different sizes of the beads. But you could also use a scraper, ground to the profile you want.

I love the simplicity of Shaker. Well done!

I am actually in the process of finishing a Shaker 7-drawer chest as I type this! Go Shaker furniture!
