Round Shaker Table

I started with Christian Becksvoort’s article http://www.finewoodworking.com/woodworking-plans/article/build-a-shaker-round-stand.aspx , made the top 20” in diameter instead of 18” and 11/16” thick instead of 1/2”. I made the middle post 2 3/4” instead of 3” since my local lumberyard thickest cherry was 12/4. I also changed the shape of the middle post a little. The legs are attached using sliding dovetails, the slots were made using the jig shown in the third picture. The legs taper from 3/4” to 1/2”. The top of the legs and the edge of the top are sanded to a slight crown. Finished with wiping varnish.

Mighty nice table, great work. I’ve got one of these of on my “to do” list, like the shaker design, and you executed it well.

I don’t know Shaker from Adam. What I know is that is one sweet table. Very well done!

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

You did a great job. Right now I am working on a cherry pedestal table myself. Congratulations on how wonderful this looks.
