Shaker End Tables
I'm the best man in a good friend's wedding. So, I made the couple a pair of Shaker end tables as a gift. They're made from stock that I had on-hand. The tops, drawer fronts, and drawer pulls are cherry. The bases and drawer sides are a Frankenstein's monster of Douglas fir, common pine, and poplar.
I don't have a lathe, so I carved the pulls with a chisel.
The drawers are dovetailed. The rest of the joinery is mortise and tenons. I cut the mortises with a router and the tenons by hand. There was one tenon that I cut too loose, so I glued a plane shaving to it and that took the fit to perfect.
The finish is black paint and wipe-on poly.
