Shaker Table

Here a small Shaker style table made from B.E. Maple and PA. Black Cherry. The tapered leg were form on the band saw and clean up with hand planes. I used my Festool’s Domino to attach the legs to the apron. The finish is a mixture of BLO, wood filler and quick dry varnish and then wipe on in multiple coats and then buff off for a smooth satin patina. This table will land up at a spring show this up coming craft season. Thanks for viewing BC

Very nice piece Wilson. That black cherry has such a rich dark tone to it. It’s beautiful stuff and serves as a great compliment to the birdseye maple.

Oh my. That is sweet.
Good design, wood selection, and execution.

You seem to hitting it from all angles; dominos and hand planes.

Beautiful table. The cherry looks like some well aged cherry and not some new growth.

A beautiful little table with great woods! I can’t believe the drawer sides are birdseye. That is real class.

Yeah, going with the BE maple on the drawer sides is over the top nice. Great looking piece.
