A couple of years ago a local investing firm hired me to build a table to hold a large screen TV for their office. They wanted simple/elegant style and that, to me, meant Shaker. A few weeks later they had it in their office and they were very pleased. So much so, I guess, that they contacted me two weeks ago to build another, but this time with a drawer. (The first table was to have a drawer - even stated life with one - but I dropped the idea before completion.)
The table will be a mate to this one
Work began today with the initial milling. Legs and tops are milled, but the apron, not so much. When I purchased the lumber I trusted my eyes instead of my tape measure and got a board that, with a little wane on one side turned out to be too narrow once the sapwood and wane were removed. Live and learn. Luckily I will be driving right past Woodcraft tomorrow on the way back from a lunch with some friends.
