This is a hall table that my wife asked for. She wanted a table for an open space in the bedroom to put framed photos on.

The piece is based on the Shaker style hall table plan from Fine Woodworking. It is made from cherry with walnut pinned mortise and tenons. The legs are turned and the finish is pre-cat urethane with wax. No additional staining – I’m waiting for it to tan in the sun. Very simple but fun and functional table to make.

Thanks for looking.

Sometimes, less is more, like they say, and this is an absolute beauty of a table in its simplicity! Wonderful table Richard, a fine job!
