After much inspiration from the Woodwhisperer site, I decided to build the Shaker table. I found an article in pop-woodworking by Chris Schwarz with the same table. The table is really only my second real piece of furniture, and my first attempt at half-blind dovetails. Solid cherry and finished with several coats of poly, waxed and buffed. Thanks for looking- Chris

That’s really nice and certainly has the shaker look. Congratulations.
