This is the table that goes with the chairs I posted a week ago.I had a lot of fun making these.I designed them but they are I would say a shaker-craftman style,if there is such a thing.I hope you all like them.

Very Nice. I need to make several chairs to match a table. Did you use plans for these? What is the joinery?

Nice job. I am particularly interested in how you formed the seats on the chairs. (Did I miss that on an earlier post? I’ve only been on here a few days.)
I downloaded a plan from Fine Woodworking for a jig using a router to route out the waste. What did you use?

That’s a great table rentman. Fills out a perfect set with chairs. Did you use Dusty’s 12 step finish? If not, what finish did you use? Thanks, for sharing.

Real fine, rentman. I am very apprehensive about tackling chair-making. Looks like you handled it very well.
