One draw table

I’ve had a picture of this great little table on the wall of my shop for a very long time and finally decided that if I can’t find the time to make one, I should make it a one week class project. This is an exceptional example of a cherry high style country piece with great details and lots of opportunity for learning hand tool skills, from dovetailed draws to hand molded and planed surfaces. There’s even a little ornamental carving to top it all off. Size is 16″x 23″x 25.5″h

The mortise and tenon skirts are pinned and drawbored to the molded legs and accented with a gadrooned molding. The crossed stretchers are half-lapped at the center and mortised into the chamfered inside face of the legs. A cockbeaded draw and top with molded corners add elegant details.

We will use cherry and pine for our copy. All materials are included.

As in all classes, we will cover the basics of sharpening and tuning tools, as well as bit of advice about finishing.

Some previous woodworking experience is advisable such as the “Intro to Hand Tools” class or the equivalent. Lacking that, a great positive attitude will probably work also.
