Shaker Hall Table

Thu, Aug 18 8:00 A.M. NH CREATE  

In this episode of Classic Woodworking, host Tom McLaughlin crafts a refined, clean, and light Shaker-inspired hall table out of gorgeous cherry using mostly hand tools. From the elegant tapered legs, to the undercut beveled edge along the top, this table offers a chance to get back to basics with extraordinary results. Techniques include using a hand plane, skimming, creating basic mortise and tenons, and chiseling pocket holes.
