A Shaker Inspired Dining Table

A friends wife contacted me one afternoon back in September, inquiring as to my availability to build a new dining table for them.   After some discussion and lengthy decision making process on the design, style, and type of wood I began construction.  This is the dry fit assembly of the table.  I used mortise and tenon joints on the lower part for this table.  Originally we discussed simpler and cheaper pocket hole joinery but I felt that a table shouldn’t need to be tightened up with time and get all wiggly like my current store bought kitchen table has a tendency to do periodically.  More on this project as it progresses.

    1. Thanks JRN! I’m just about done with the finish work and will post a picture of the final product. I’m pretty pleased with the way it came out. I hope the customer for whom it is built likes it as much as I do.
