This winter I built a wonderful shaker side table or writing desk. The piece is made from clear pine and Douglas Fir. Working with these material was a pleasure; the pine was beautifully grained and came shooting out of the smoothing plane like streamers.
The tapered Douglas Fir legs are rock hard, and straight-grained.
The base is simply mortise and tenoned that features a bead along the apron and stained with a tinted stain of China red; this stain choice makes the top grain and color pop and shine.
The finish on this piece is simple Tung oil and wax; care for this piece simply involves rubbing Old English yellow furniture polish on it as needed. I am asking $50.00 for this piece, I will deliver if you live within 5 hrs of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. If you would like the piece please leave a comment; first come first serve basis, and cash or check until I sell more pieces and set up a Pay Pal account. If the piece is sold and you still would like one please also contact me.
