John’s Shaker End Table
By John Thomas from Darlington
Added on August 4, 2016
I am 13 years old and got into woodworking about a year ago. This is the first time I attempted to build something like this, ‘fine-ish’ piece of furniture.
It is a shaker end table/beside table, made out of pine for the legs, ambrosia maple for the top, sapele mahogany for the end grain cap, and funky-looking cherry on the apron. It is joined with biscuits and finished with lacquer. I also made the coasters. Three are purple heart, walnut, and sapele and one is paduak and cherry.
