Wireless Woodworker – Ep4 – The Shaker Side Table

Follow along as I build a Shaker Side table in cherry with hand tools. This video shows snippets of the whole process including rough cutting the stock, gluing up a panel for the top, tapering the legs, cutting the dovetails, and turning the knob.

  1. Nice job. I like your way of fine woodworking. That Roubo Saw for resawing is extraordinary. Have you made it by yourself or purchased the frame ? ( I am really thinking to get it, but I do not know if making it or purchasing it, even if I know it costs very much ). More , what kind of wood did you use for that lovely shaker table ? Thanks, Giuliano, Italy.

  2. He is using it as a kerf extender for the sawn dovetail. Rob Cosman has a commercial one for sale at aa ridiculous price, but a good video showing concept. Make your own using card scraper.

  3. Beautiful work and thank you for sharing. I love your gentle (and quiet) approach to woodworking. One of my first projects was a Shaker table like this but I did cheat a little and used my tablesaw during the build. Like you, I have some beautiful Lie Nielsen planes and saws and am now inspired to really get to know them better and avoid loud machinery where possible! Might I suggest that you could escape your next winter by coming over to Sydney, Australia! Cheers mate – Dave
