Simple Hall Table

Just a simple hall table for my sister-in-law built out of red oak with poplar drawers. I referenced Woodsmith’s plan of a Shaker hall table but mostly designed as I built. The aprons are mortised into the legs and the drawers have half-blind DT’s in the front and through DT’s in the back. I cut the drawer fronts out of the front apron for a continuous grain pattern.
The bottom shelf is attached to stretchers between the front and rear legs, and has cleats on the bottom to hopefully keep it flat.
My scraper was used extensively to remove the scratches and planer marks before finishing with a blend of golden oak and red oak stains, then a few coats of water based poly.
I turned the drawer pulls from walnut and finished with boiled linseed oil.
Thanks for looking !!

Very nice work. Beautiful piece. Nice touch cutting the drawer faces out of the apron for continuity.

Very nice build on this project, beautiful looking. I like the wood contrast between the oak and the walnut pulls, nice touch.

That is a great looking table. Your work to maintain the grain across the drawers really payed off.
